Do you know what Walmart & Porsche have in common?
They are both family owned. We mean something vastly different.
So, what do we mean when we say “Family Owned & Operated”?

  • At The Shower Shop every Monday – Friday you will find Mike Smith (Owner) and Jill Smith (Sales Professional), husband and wife, hands-on in the office, cutting glass/mirror, putting on a tool belt, and in customers’ homes estimating.

  • We do not mean our family just controls the business…we are meeting first-hand with all customers. We are not too big to know about every customer.

  • At The Shower Shop, you will find a shorter chain of command compared to other Shower Door companies.

  • Because we have one location and a small (yet mighty) crew, customer information travels quick & all ideas are openly discussed with Mike & Jill.

  • With other companies, you may only ever meet with the face of the company once, if you are lucky.

  • Every customer who walks in the door can have the opportunity to work with Mike and/or Jill.

  • That is the sort of thing that is possible when you are part of a family-owned & operated business.

  • Both Jill & Mike are long-term residents of Sarasota. They met in Sarasota over 30 years ago. Together they opened The Shower Shop in 2002. Each year they’ve expand their business and relationships.

  • The sense of long-term connection between our sales professionals, crews, and customers keeps us highly motivated, accountable, and dedicated.​
