We are a one stop specialty retail infant and children's furniture store.” He said, “Our philosophy of business is integrity, combined with a firm commitment to quality and service.”
In fact, this is why the Whytes went into business; they wanted to help new parents find what that they want and need for their babies. According to Chris, “Having a baby is a special time in a person's life. We want to help the parents of this community provide for their children’s most basic needs. Building memories is an important part of building a family, and through our business we can provide families the things they need to help build the kinds of good memories that will last for generations.” Pat added, “USA BABY is a happy place. If you elect to put a great deal of time and energy into a business, it should be an enjoyable experience!”
USA BABY provides parents with all the necessities to welcome their new arrival home. We offer designer room vignettes where parents can actually see how their baby's room can look in a large selection of styles, colors and finishes. This, plus a wide array of cribs, rockers, bassinets, dressers, car seats, strollers, carriages, changing tables and more – all with choices of fabrics and styles, makes USA BABY the perfect place to shop for your baby’s needs.
We also provide parents with grooming and bathtime helpers, travel accessories, Avent Feeding Systems, exercisers and developmental toys, books and puzzles, as well as the necessary childproofing products like baby monitors, electrical outlet shields, drawer locking clips and more. You will be able to find what you need to make your baby’s room cozy and comfortable.
