Best Store Greeter

Gus DeFoy, Twin Oaks Hardware

Donna and Harry DeFoy's store has survived in the era of warehouse discounters because of their great central location and because they provide the kind of personal service only a family business can. Gus DeFoy proves this every day, making customers feel at ease, listening to (if not exactly understanding) customers' needs, taking frequent naps to allow undisturbed shopping, and offering his tummy for scratching. Did we mention that Gus is a basset hound?
