My number one grocery store in this entire city has been family owned and operated for the last 50 years, then i don’t have anything against important chain corporations, however they just cannot replicate the personal touch of a locally owned business! For instance, my number one grocery store will stock nearly any item I ask them to.
When egg prices shot up by at least 60% nationwide, I asked my local grocery store to stock the imitation egg products.
While they’re not the exact same thing as having real eggs, I’d much rather pay less to get something similar. In addition to the imitation egg products, this grocery store also started stocking a unique brand of pork tenderloins when I made the personal request. Other grocery store chains will tell you that there’s nothing they can do if the parent corporation isn’t stocking their stores with the products you want. As far as other family owned businesses are distraught, I’m also a important fan of my Heating and Air Conditioning corporation. This corporation is run by the grandson of the original founder and they have some of the best reviews on the internet out of all the companies in our county that labor with Heating and Air Conditioning equipment. Unluckyly, I couldn’t get immediate Heating and Air Conditioning service because they had to close down their shop this week for repairs and remodeling. While I’m not ecstatic about waiting on service for 6 mornings, I understand that the Heating and Air Conditioning corporation has to deal with their own overhead from time to time. At least they’re willing to supply myself and others the best services at the best prices.
