"We don't believe bigger is better. We believe better is better. In this day and age when large national chains and foreign-owned specialty chains are vying for our local dollars and sales, Mollie Stone's offers locals the ability to keep all the revenues and spending here in the Bay Area. Mollie Stone's is filling the void for old style hometown quality, selection, and service," Bennett added. "We specialize in catering to customers who need (and deserve) extra attention and hard to find products, or those who simply need help or assistance. Call us old fashioned, but Mollie Stone's still treats customers one at a time. Always have. Always will."
Mollie Stone's was awarded the "Golden Spire Outstanding Business of the Year" award from the Marin County Board of Supervisors. This award honors the Marin County business that makes a significant contribution to the county's economic vitality while at the same time demonstrates corporate responsibility in terms of sustainability, generosity, and a progressive work environment.
