Green Shack Market calls itself “your one-stop shop for everything you need.” Located in San Bernardino, California in a building built in 1928, it is open seven days a week and provides customers with an array of services.
There are groceries, a deli counter with breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, Travel Shack where visitors can book a vacation trip or inquire about different pricing options for their travel plans, Western Union financial services, Lottery tickets, Notary and Passport services and tax preparation services.
Green Shack Market has a 4.5 rating on Yelp with 70+ reviews, which by itself tells you a lot about the quality of products and services offered there. On October 22, 2015, Green Shack received the 23rd Senatorial District Award. It was also honored as a 2015 Top Chamber Business by State Senator Mike Morrel and the Inland Empire Black Chamber of Commerce.
The owners themselves still work at the Shack, remember customers by name, do their best to have friendly, knowledgeable employees and keep the place very clean. The deli counter has free samples of food and a lot of options for vegetarians. Signature sandwiches all have interesting and funky names such as "The Joker," "Mafia Meatball," "Shack Style Philly," and "Roast Beef Dipper."
On top of this, sandwich shop workers read a fortune when giving out orders to the customers, all of whom enjoy friendly and laid-back atmosphere.
With so many services under one roof, Green Shack has a lot of creative and unusual promotions. For example, for Christmas they had a party in the store with a live band. Their promotion for Valentine’s Day is “Win a Date on Us” and includes a chance to win a bottle of wine, two movie tickets, and a box of chocolate covered strawberries. “Winter on Us” promotion includes a lot of travel-related special deals for destinations in Mexico.
