I started thinking about what would go with futons in our store? I did a little research and found lots of interesting stories about what other stores carry to sell or just keep you entertained. Here is a list from stores in different areas of the country that caught my attention.
Futons and jewelry, like biker variety, anything pierced and some nice stuff. Something big and something little.
Futons and pets, not selling them but living with them in the store. Cats were the most popular followed by dogs. Sometimes way too many cats. How could you deal with allergy prone customers? Fish are good and look pretty in a tank while sitting on a nice futon in your den with a decorative cover, maybe one with fish on it. And last, a talking parrot who, when anybody came in with food, yelled "c'mere".
Futons and rolling papers, Oops can't do that in the south!
One store even sells futons and barstools to apartment dwellers. All you need is a futon sofa sleeper and bar stools for the kitchen and you're all set.
