A Hess Mart on Richmond Terrace in Staten Island, New York, looked humble from the outside, but inside, it was neat and orderly. A United Dairy Farmer store in suburban Cincinnati gets a "full cup" for customer service from one CSNews editor who stopped in to buy a couple of 12-packs of Bud. At the counter, the clerk advised him that the cooler was just stocked that morning, but the beers in the back cooler should be colder. Kudos to an Atlanta, Georgia-area Racetrac store on Delk Road just off 1-75. The store associate greeted all shoppers with a cheerful hello as they entered.
