As Westchase Patch readers voted on their favorite businesses when it comes to customer service, a few quickly rose to the top. One of those that has really shined in the customer service contest is Mi Bebe.
Patch recently caught up with the folks behind the business.
Patch: What is the owner’s name?
Mi Bebe: Liana Baldor
Patch: How long have you been open?
Baldor: Since December 2001
Patch: How long have you lived in the area?
Baldor: Since 1998
Patch: What do you love about living and working in our town?
Baldor: I love the family atmosphere in this community. It’s great to see all the families out and about walking, riding bikes, playing in the park etc. Thanks to the support of the Westchase community we have been able to surviving these challenging economic times. Westchase customers have been very loyal to us; many mention how happy they are that we are still here and don’t want us to leave.
Patch: What do you wish everyone who came into your shop knew about you?
Baldor: The store is a living legacy to my daughter Ana Maria Baldor-Bunn who passed away from cancer 4 months after the store opened. Mi Bebe’ was her dream and she was able to see it fulfilled. Thanks to the dedication of her two friends, Kristina Fazio and Michelle Mendez, who currently run the store her dream lives on.
Patch: Tell us a quick story about a time you provided awesome customer service:
Baldor: After being opened 10 years it’s hard to pick just one story. We always try to go the extra mile to find what our customers are looking for. If we don’t have an item we do our best to locate it for them whether it be online or even with a local competing business.
