Crestline, CA – January 1, 2018, The Oak Trunk Store began an integration with Goodwin and Sons Market, located at 24089 Lake Gregory Drive in Crestline.
With the huge rise in California State Regulations, jump in minimum wage, transportation costs, etc., it is necessary to combine operations into one location so they can continue to offer these unique items to the community.
The Oak Trunk has been a staple in the community since 1987, and the Goodwin family has been honored to serve the community’s needs with this unique store. The majority of the Oak Trunk’s inventory will be moved over, minus a few categories. Goodwin and Son’s Market will be a good fit for the retail operation, and will allow a convenient shopping experience for locals looking for groceries, gifts, hand dipped chocolates, ice cream, home decor, and unique gift items. These items will be integrated in to aisles 14-18.
Our plan is to also add a new ‘old-fashioned’ soda fountain (in the center aisle), with unique flavors, shakes and ice creams in the Goodwin and Sons.
The integration should be complete by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
The Oak Trunk is grateful for all of the loyal customers who have supported them for the past 30 years. The Goodwin Family and its Employees are looking forward to serving the Mountain Community moving forward.
