Good Marketing And Good Business Practices: Something To Be Thankful For

Beneath the food and the parties and it’s somewhat complex historical roots, Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks. And while on that day I will be giving mine to my family and friends, and all the other things I am lucky enough to have, I think it also time to give it to some of the businesses that do so much to make their customers happy.

So, in no particular order:

Thank you, Chipotle on Gulf to Bay Boulevard, for serving food that I actually get to see before it goes into my burrito. And for being able to handle specialty orders on the fly amidst your fast-moving lines.

Thank you, Barnes and Noble by Sunset Point, for having a coffee shop built into your bookstore. For allowing two of the best possible smells–book paper and roasting coffee–to exist in the same place. For making an overwhelmingly pleasant atmosphere to browse in, and for having book displays marketing new interesting releases.

Thank you, Pierce Street Market underneath the Memorial Causeway Bridge, for updating me every time you’re open on Facebook, and for making it possible for me to support local businesses without having to travel around the entire city.

Thank you, One Stoppe Shoppe on Cleveland Street, for being in the perfect location for if I need something while I’m in downtown Clearwater. And for excellent customer service and being willing to answer my questions.

Thank You To The Businesses That Take The Time To Market Right

And finally, thank you to all of the other businesses who work so hard, who give us good service, and quality products. And in the spirit of the holiday, I hope that your employees have a nice Thanksgiving, and that you–the owners– do so as well.  

And for all you reading this, I wish you the same.
