The article focuses on Bristol Farms' general merchandise store in Palm Desert, California. According to demographic data, its consumer base has plenty of time--and plenty of disposable income--to seek out the finer things in life, including ornate wooden salad bowls, handmade gift baskets, and $700 fountains. The housewares category is a good example of a product mix geared to this specialized and lucrative market. Aside from houseware, the store also sells more than 3,000 varieties of wine.
