One of the
Family Pet Supply
288
Lincoln Blvd., Middlesex, 732.564.1199
oneofthefamilypetsupply.com
Pet food and supplies can be purchased
just about anywhere, but customers
frequent One of the Family Pet Supply not
only for the premium food, pet accesso-
ries and competitive prices, but also for
the knowledge of its employees. Despite
the warehouse atmosphere, the service
and expertise of the employees give it
that neighborhood feel. The owners of
the store, which opened a year and a half
ago, truly believe that a pet is
one of the family.”

It seems like the kind of dress shop that would
be more at home in an upscale mall, but Bern-
stein’s is located smack dab in the middle of a
strip mall. The store has outfitted women with
ready-to-wear and custom-made prom, formal
and mother-of-the-bride dresses by high-quality
fashion designers, including Jovani Couture and
Lourdes Chavez, for more than 60 years. The
in-store alterations will make that off-the-rack
number look like a perfect fit. What sets Bern-
stein’s apart are the designer trunk sales that
take place in-house several times a year.
