Comfort on the corner

Two-and-a-half years ago, Heather Finn bought a chilly pad for her bed. She says it changed her life and she’s sharing her joy

Two-and-a-half years ago, Heather Finn bought a chilly pad for her bed.

She says it changed her life and she’s sharing her joy at A-ffinity Comfort Solutions.

The comfort she enjoyed from the bedding that has tubes that circulate warm or cold water on demand was so profound, she wanted to sell the mattress covers herself.

The only way she could do that was to have a “bricks and mortar” location, so she set about finding products that provide comfort in one way or the other and, with husband, George, opened the new store at the corner of Hudson Avenue and Alexander Street.

Warm Buddies are stuffed animals in a variety of shapes and sizes, with rice pack innards that can be heated or cooled as desired – including slippers.

Many of Finn’s products are Canadian-made.

Shoppers are invited to create their own bedding comfort from a line of mattresses, toppers, memory foam and feathers.

“You can lie down and try them all out,” Finn says, noting she carries a big selection of pillows.

A-Finnity Comfort Solutions is open 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
