Sharing the History of Grosh

Besides being the full time warehouse manager, Eric Mueller also makes time to be Grosh’s tour guide extraordinaire.   Eric has been with Grosh for 30 of its 80 years and has a plethora of history to endow on tour-goers.  Huell Howser visited Grosh in the beginning of 2011 and definitely kicked off an upsurge of touring the facilities. Click here to see Huell’s visit to the shop. Grosh is thankful for being able to interact with the community and tries to accommodate over a dozen tours a year.  We have had many groups come through here to learn about the history of backdrops and drapery in the entertainment industry.  Some of our “tourists” include The Antique Automobile Club, The Silvercrest Senior Citizens Residence of Santa Monica, University Synagogue of Brentwood, and students from the Polytechnic School of Pasadena.

Grosh President, Amanda Uhlein Shares Her Philosophy for Giving

Grosh President, Amanda Uhlein Shares Her Philosophy for Giving

What are the  causes Grosh supports?

Amanda: We support a variety of causes to assist individuals and survivors afflicted with various challenges in their health. It’s important for our company and our staff to contribute to causes that are meaningful to us personally and to our customers. There are times when we will match a percentage of the amount raised from our clients or we will in most cases do an additional donation later in the year.  

 Why these causes?

Amanda: This initially started with Grosh and my family personally donating to the National Stroke Association   after loosing my mother to a stroke in 2006 at the age of 58. Once we did this we thought that the following year, we should do something that can get our customers involved with other charities meaningful to them. We had started getting feedback and selected Stroke Awareness, Breast Cancer, Red Cross and St. Jude to name a few. Each year we will be selecting different charities by getting feedback from our customers and staff and continue to support those survivors and those who’ve had to survive without their loved ones.
