About Great News
Today Great News Cookware and Cooking School is located in Pacific Beach, a sunny seaside community in San Diego, California. We are a destination for local cooks, foodies, chefs and gadget hounds. Out of town visitors come see us as well, (we even have the occasional celebrity sighting) and we are fortunate that word has spread and our reputation for great products and outstanding service is legendary. In fact, Great News Cookware and Cooking School won the 2011 Best Kitchenware Retailer in the USA! We were voted “Best” by not only our customers, but also by our vendors and industry partners! Great News has been nominated for International Retailer of the Year and we await the final results! Impressive for a single store, run by a committed staff and an obsessive owner determined to sell the best, and be the best.
Ron and Carol Eisenberg moved from Cleveland in 1976 with their three kids and two dogs to relocate to sunny San Diego. Tired of the harsh winter weather of Ohio, having been trained as a pharmacist, working and owning drug stores was what Ron did for a living.
Carol loved working and enjoyed doing the purchasing for the pharmacy card department. Ron found that his true love was the excitement of retail, rather than pharmacy work. The concept for the new business they would create in San Diego was to be a functional housewares store with an alternative greeting card section. It was named “Great News” in order to convey the excitement of “great new items all the time.”
