Tell us a couple things you are proud of about your business. What are you known for? What separates you from the competition?
My team and I welcome all customers as if they were being invited into our home. Several times a day we hear how good if feels in here, how eclectic it is (and it most certainly is that!), what a fun place it is, what a wide range of items we carry. Inner Oasis is about people on their path.. if we can help in any way, we do so. Our tag line: A Healing Environment, Inspiration, Tools, and Gifts for the Soul.
What is your favorite part of running this business?
The wonderful people who come in here – they are now our community – our family. When I was ill in 2018 and unable to help myself, it was this community that did grocery shopping for me, took me to medical appointments, etc. One of my (then) team, took over and kept Inner Oasis going.
Even today, people come in with suggestions for products for the store – all of which we faithfully research and often bring in. Some of our “Regulars’ come in often, “just to see what’s new and what you have moved!”
I may own and manage Inner Oasis, with the help my outstanding team, but the shop truly belongs to the people. McMinnville is the greatest!
