Small Business Saturday Part 2: Appreciating our local dealers
Small Business Saturday, for Water, Inc., is about appreciating all the small businesses we work with, thank you to all the brick and mortar locations that have helped make us what we are today.
Hopefully you are stuffed from your Thanksgiving feast, and have made your way through the leftovers - which is the best part in my opinion. My personal favorite is to eat pumpkin pie for breakfast with my coffee (don’t knock it till you’ve tried it).
Now is the time to get off the couch, pry yourself away from the football or Christmas movies. Take a break and make it out to support a small locally owned business this Small Business Saturday. One of my favorite things is to shop downtown Manhattan Beach, CA and find unique Christmas gifts that you can't find at the big stores. Now that I live in Colorado, I love shopping downtown Littleton, especially at Details Boutique or 5 Well Being. How fun are little boutique stores that carry cool stuff! And even better is contributing to your local economy.
More Local Dealers we Appreciate
We are so blessed to work with a lot of amazing businesses. Here are a few more that we are happy to celebrate today. If you are in need of a replacement cartridge or anything else, swing by and pick one up as many of these local companies stock our products. Please call in advance as some of these fine stores are observing holiday hours or are closed for the weekend.

One of the best parts of Fireside is the way they support and serve their community. Currently they are running an incredible fundraiser for the Thousand Oaks shooting. Please support this cause if you can by purchasing a raffle ticket!!
MOUNTAIN LAND DESIGN - Utah, Wyoming & Idaho
Mountain Land Design's story began in Utah. The Devenport brothers began their business with a humble start over 30 years ago delivering kitchen appliances for a UT builder. With their passion, foresight and incredible customer service, they have grown their business to two neighboring states, in Wyoming and Idaho. Their showrooms are stunning with beautiful functioning vignettes, with the best professional staff who are ready to help. They are also known for their amazing holiday parties, where Cirque de Soleil style dancers hang from the ceiling and dangle on trapeze contraptions while pouring champagne. True story. I have been and it's an amazing time. They say it best themselves on their website: “In a nutshell, Mountain Land Design is much more than an appliance, hardware, and plumbing company; we are built on the foundation of our relationships with each other and our clients. The phrase 'Mountain Land Design Family' is used often in conversation to describe our company dynamic and we always have room at the table for one more.” We are proud to be a partner with MLD and be among the best of the best products they offer their clientele.

Snyder Diamond - Los Angeles
Snyder Diamond and Water, Inc have been doing business together for too many years to count. Walt Diamond and Lou Snyder founded this business is 1949, and it has grown into a premier showroom in the Los Angeles area. They have expanded from their original location in Santa Monica out to North Hollywood and Pasadena. Snyder Diamond is now operated by CEO Russ Diamond. As said by our sales managers “Russ Diamond has made SD a high end specialty destination, instead of a big box type of store. They have high end limited brands; definitely not an “us too” store. I am proud to have our products showcased and supported by Snyder Diamond.” Major and Russ have become friends over the years, and I have had the privilege of enjoying a few rounds of golf with him at industry events .
What's really neat is how, just like Water, Inc., many of Snyder Diamond's associates have made a career working for SD, and several have been there for over three decades.
If you are into social media, check them out. I admit I have a total crush on their awesome Instagram page, a little envious of the quality content they always post. I have been known to repost their stuff. I especially love the personal touches they share, and enjoy seeing pictures of smiling Russ on their page, plus really cool new & different products.
