Superstores and one-stop shopping centers may increasingly be the norm these days, but it’s just what giant retailers and chain stores don’t provide that give the smaller niche stores the opportunity to thrive and survive. Variety, product expertise and in most cases, outstanding customer service as well as a willingness to stand behind the items they sell well after the sale are generally the trademarks of these types of businesses. After all, as a small business owner, if you don’t keep them coming back, you won’t be around for very long. As is the case with a variety of product lines, those specializing in the bedding and linen industry are best served in the specialty shop environment. The following is a list of some of Connecticut’s finest bedding and linen outlets catering to a wide variety of tastes and budgets and, in most cases, under an hour from anywhere in the state.
