We couldn’t agree more…
“always, always, always go inside any establishment that piques your interest,” says a recent review of George Bowers. We already know our customers are an adventurous bunch (love you guys!) but we never tire of the reminder to explore the great unknown. That’s what makes life interesting, right? Thank you, Staunton News Leader for the generous review of George Bowers Grocery! Read the full review here.
A quick story…
We had two new faces come in last weekend. We noticed they took photos of our sign and so when they paid up after eating (with a six pack, to go) we had to ask: “Where are you from?” The answer: Texas. Turns out this pair was traveling from upstate New York en route home. “What made you stop in Staunton?”
“Our friend Googled his name and convinced us to make the detour.”
So a friendly “hi” and thanks for sending your friends, Mr. George Bowers of Texas! If you friends misplaced the little something we sent along to you drop us a line (219 W. Beverley Street, Staunton, VA 24401) and we’ll send another. That goes for any other George Bowers out there, too!
While the Internet has been challenging for many Main Street businesses we can be pleased when unexpected business arrives through that route and off interstate 81!
