the groundUP stores operates with 12 basic business principles and goals in mind:

  1. Provide our customers with GOOD, QUALITY products that are made in the USA.
  2. Provide HONEST & FAIR pricing - if we save money, you should save money, too.
  3. Assure that our customers purchase the products that are appropriate for their specific needs & conditions.
  4. Stand behind our products and services, offering our customers a warranty on everything that we sell.
  5. Strive for 100% customer satisfaction with each and every transaction.
  6. Treat even the smallest order with the same urgency and respect that others might reserve for just their biggest customers.
  7. Do what we say we're going to do, when we say we're going to do it.
  8. Communicate with our customers when unforeseen delays do occur (we won't leave you guessing).
  9. Always search for the win-win in every situation  (this carries through to our customers, vendors, partners and employees).
  10. Become the "go-to" problem solvers for our customers in as many categories as possible.
  11. Never forget that business is about relationships (it's not about sales).
  12. Protect the greatest asset that we will ever own - our reputation.
