In this day and age when consumers have thousands of options at their fingertips, it can be easy to only consider the price point when making a decision about bath renovations and related products. But it’s important to consider the bigger picture. Businesses need to stand out in more ways than just cost. One of those ways is building and maintaining relationships with their community.
Monique’s Bath Showroom is far ahead of this curve. Since their inception in 1983, they have been cognizant of their community work and contributions, and are loyal to the causes they care about. Not only do they offer high-quality products and top-notch customer service, but they also recognize that being a local business is more than being a business—it’s also about being local, in more ways than one.
Most recently, Michael Battista, president of Monique’s, sat down with Zack Gosselin, a young and budding philanthropist and organizer of the DreamBigVille Donate-A-Thon, to discuss Monique’s charity work. Monique’s has consistently been Zack’s largest donor over the years.

Currently, Michael sits on the Board of Trustees for the DPHA, an organization that the most exquisite showrooms in America turn to, to help them operate in a world-class way!
