Retail Excellence Winner:: Mrs. G TV and Appliances: A Community-Minded Dealer
Mrs. G TV and Appliances has been in business for 79 years. What began as a plumbing supply company in 1935 has been transformed over the years by Mrs. G (Mrs. Beatrice Greenberg) herself—who ran the place until her passing in 2010—and her family.
Debbie Schaeffer, Mrs. G’s granddaughter, who is the company principal today, spent the years having lunch with her grandmother at the front desk of the store and went into business with her in 1998. She took over completely just seven years ago.
“She never really had an office. She always sat up front so when you walked in you would always see her and she would greet you,” said Schaeffer.
