Offering an alternative to pharmaceutical dependence, sleep specialists Parker & Morgan opens at Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga Park. "Trained Sleep Consultants" take the place of your usual sales staff here, where you'll find "range of more than 140 pillows, furniture, decorative textiles, spa and aromatherapy products, including candles, shampoo, conditioners, body lotions and oils, accessories, sleepwear, herbal teas and honey," per the release. The 1,400-square-foot shop has taken a "soothing" approach to its interior with a neutral palette and natural materials such as teak, stone and marble, glass and leather. Besides being able to tell you what pillow suits you best, there will also be monthly sleep workshops from chiropractors, allergist, homeopaths, herbalist and the like, which, at the end of the day, will hopefully be a snoozefest.
