Small is Beautiful: Support Small Business

With Small Business Saturday coming this weekend, it's a good time to remember the many excellent small shops and businesses in Sherman Oaks.

Small Business Saturday coming this weekend.

'Small is beautiful' is a concept that probably needs more attention. Feel free to shop at a small business in the neighborhood during the holiday season.

The malls get most of the 'Black Friday' coverage, but there are equally good deals available at many small businesses in Sherman Oaks.

Coming soon, in time for  " Small Business Saturday," we'll provide you with a list of small business in Sherman Oaks that you will enjoy visiting.

If there's a small business that you can recommend, share it with us in the comments below.

One of my favorite small businesses in Sherman Oaks is the Bestime Clock shop on Ventura Boulevard just west of Van Nuys Boulevard.The owner Berge Ouzounian is polite,knowledgeable, and his family has been in the business for 111 years on three continents. If you're buying a watch or clock for a present, check with Berge.

I like the Coffee Roaster on Ventura Blvd one block + east of Woodman on the North side of the street. This shop has been here for a couple of decades, but the newest owner, Stacey, is the one that keeps the life of this small business. Not only is there fresh brewed coffee, but the heart and soul is the fresh roasted coffee beans!

Berge is trustworthy and the Roaster serves up some of the best coffee in town. Then, there is the Carnival Restaurant on Woodman and Moorpark - consistently good and popular Middle Eastern Cuisine. For good Mexican food - La Fogata, Van Nuys and Moorpark. Both have been owned and operated by the same people for decades.
