S.L.O.B.™ was founded by a local business owner who passionately believes that locally owned businesses — and the people that support them — form the foundation of strong, vibrant neighborhoods. Local businesses are the characters in our communities.
They customize their businesses to suit their community. They are extensions of our kitchens and living rooms. We meet our neighbors there, we meet new friends, we lounge around, read the paper, study for our exams. Sometimes we just go to people watch, but we love the feel of locally owned businesses.
Joe Grant, S.L.O.B.™ in Chief
"I launched SLOB™ because there is an ongoing theme in my conversations with my customers lately. The turn in the economy has forced people to be more aware of how they spend money, time, and resources. They think more about the value they get--beyond a good price. Positive experiences, human interactions, and unique offerings are increasingly important. Being a SLOB™ helps direct consumers to places where they can find this kind of value."
