The Dressing Room
Cumberland County | 122 The Crossings, Crossville
(931) 707-0444

It began as an online boutique in May 2016, focused on bringing affordable fashions to customers’ doorsteps. In less than a year, The Dressing Room opened the doors to their brick-and-mortar storefront in February 2017. The Dressing Room strives to cater to everyone and every price point; even offering layaway.

“In high school I wanted this pair of leather boots, but real leather boots are expensive so I bought some knockoff boots,” said owner Jennifer Lanzilotta. “I believe I had to buy three pairs that year. I wanted customers to be able to buy whatever they wanted, so I added layaway.”

The boutique recently began offering a Mystery Box subscription service, allowing subscribers the opportunity to be styled by The Dressing Room staff. Each month, subscribers receive $75 worth of clothing for the $50 subscription price while receiving coordinated items to fit the latest trends.

(931) 879-9997 (Jamestown)/(931) 863-3323 (Clarkrange)

A family business with family values, Hall Family Pharmacy was established in Jamestown in 2014. Since then, the company has grown by leaps and bounds, opening a second location in Clarkrange with plans for further expansion.

Offering a variety of programs and services, Hall Family Pharmacy aims to promote health awareness, education and responsibility. They just kicked off their 2017 Vaccine Charity Campaign – the pharmacy’s third – in which the pharmacy donates $1 for each flu shot administered from now until Dec. 1.

The pharmacy’s old-fashioned soda fountain, complete with hand-dipped ice cream, is a customer favorite and the Granny Ena’s Reuben sandwich is practically famous, receiving state and regional recognition.

“I feel like we have truly brought back the old-fashioned pharmacy design with all the bells and whistles of the big chain pharmacies,” Philip Hall, CEO, said.
