Retailer Spotlight : SanFranPsycho

What better way to kick off our retailer spotlight series than to start with the very first store that carried LSTN?! This amazing retailer took a chance on our fledgling brand when we were still out of our apartment in North Hollywood and didn't even have packaging for our headphones.

SanFranPsycho has 3 locations in San Francisco and a great website. You can still buy and demo our headphones there - only now with real packaging ;-) We caught up with owner, Andy Olive.

When did you open your store? 

First store open 4 years ago and it's been a great ride ever since

What is one thing you really want people to know about your store? 

Every item in our store being offered for sale to customers is relative to our lifestyle. There's a story behind everything and people love to be able to relate on a personal level to the variety of products we carry

What are your favorite products that you sell?

I'd have to say right now I love watching people check out our new sunscreen and lip balm. We work with an organic farm in Morro Bay that grows almost all of their ingredients on their farm and provide an amazing, waterproof, GMO free safe sun protection. That and of course watching people listen to the demo LSTN headphones and the expression on their face is of pure bliss. 

What is currently on your playlist? 

Lately I start my mornings out with Reggae, particularly Toots and the Maytals, hit up some solid rock n roll in the afternoon with the Down And Outlaws, then wrap up my days with some good old bluegrass.
