showing the love
You might have made it through Valentine’s Day, but the need for perfect gifts is year-round. St. Louis startup Greetabl (greetabl.com) has you covered with its personalized gift packages. Visitors to the site can choose a custom box design, upload three favorite photos, select from a menu of treats and include a personal message. The resulting surprise ships in three to five days.

 outfitting the world 
Fourlaps, a men’s athletic apparel brand founded by St. Louis native Daniel Shapiro, just went international! The collection is now being sold in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe. Since its launch in 2016, the clothing line, which features some products made right here in the StL, has been recognized in publications such as GQ, Men’s Fitness and Men’s Health.

the legacy continues 
Although Rothman Furniture & Mattress is officially out of business, it isn’t exactly over. A series of Michigan-based Art Van furniture stores will be installed as franchises this year in the former Rothman properties in Affton, Bridgeton and O’Fallon (Missouri and Illinois). Rothman president and CEO Jay Steinback also will lead an Art Van expansion, opening as many as 10 stores in the St. Louis area.

exercise in growth 
Olivette resident Don Eisenberg and his daughter, Jessica Phillips of Kirkwood, have opened a third The Exercise Coach franchise at 8500 Maryland Ave. in Clayton. Instead of treadmills and weights, the gym is outfitted with computerized machines and robotics for a 20-minute customized workout. Other locations are in Webster Groves and Town & Country.

high rollers, take note
Lumiere Place Casino & Hotels has opened a new, technologically enhanced, private room for high-limit table games. It includes six blackjack tables, craps, roulette and baccarat.
