The article highlights independent retailer Stew Leonard's. The retailer offers a wide array of perishables with a distinct twist--including its own dairy products, fresh-squeezed orange juice, scratch baked goods, fresh-cut fruit, hand-trimmed meats, deli prepared foods, and even handmade mozzarella--with as much as the manufacturing process as possible carried out right in front the customer. The company's unique philosophy informs all aspects of the business, and comes straight from the clan that lives by it.
