Local Startup Announces First Local Retail Location

Live On Goods, LLC, a Fort Wayne based startup company, is pleased to announce placement of its bonTop Collection in their first local retail location. The bonTops™ are now available at the Lutheran Hospital Gift Shop located on the Lutheran Hospital campus, 7900 West Jefferson Boulevard, Fort Wayne, Indiana.

“Live On Goods officially launched its first product, the bonTop, earlier this spring. My partners and I are thrilled to have a local retail site that gives individuals the opportunity to see the bonTops and experience the high-quality, highly fashionable fabrics used,” said Laura Rao, Live On Goods Marketing Director. The locally manufactured bonTops are the stylish adult clothing protector. They are gender specific, washable, stain resistant, waterproof and have a signature pouch to catch crumbs. The bonTop is a practical yet fashionable solution for those adults needing some type of clothing protector (adult bib). This includes seniors as well as those adults with physical disabilities. Current clients are raving about the bonTops, stating, “I love the colors. I wear it at every meal.” Also, "I look ‘first class’ when I wear my bonTop!”

The mission of Live On Goods is to offer a line of fine products for adults to support a social and enjoyable lifestyle. This will enable individuals to dine with dignity, regardless of where they are dining.
