When is the last time you can remember a positive customer experience in a retail store? I'm lucky; I just had two and both were with newly launched Bergen County businesses. Maybe I am just a sucker for entrepreneurs because I am one, but I think these are the real deal... go ahead tell them I sent you - this is a networking group after all!
Fabio & Co. Leather Interiors
Owners Fabio & Iana greet you at the door of the beautiful leather showroom. They make you feel at home by offering you a cappuccino or water and then personally walk you through the store of fine leather goods. They are straight forward and friendly, two qualities you don't see often enough in business. Visit the showroom on E. Route 4 in Paramus and check them out on FB - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fabio-and-Co/397707853622557
Olive Branch & Grape Vine
This clever boutique of finely chosen domestic and imported olive oils, balsamic vinegars, skin care and gift items recently opened its doors in Westwood. Owners Chuck Adams & Paul Karoyan approach the business from the "foodie" and the "retail" sides, as complimentary as olive oil and balsamic. Once again, Olive Branch & Grape Vine offer a welcoming, friendly atmosphere and carefully chosen, quality products. I think this is a great source for corporate gifts.
