Going the extra mile for customers like this is common at Grossmont Center’s Shop Local businesses. These kinds of establishments are terrific at figuring out what their customers want and going above and beyond for them. Part of that is due to the hands-on nature of the owners, whom you will often find working the counter and interacting with customers. The owners develop relationships with regulars and can glean face-to-face feedback that helps them offer the best goods and services. Local business owners also relate so well to customers because these entrepreneurs are very ingrained in the community and know how to fill a niche and offer something unique to their community.
