The Attitude Adjustment Shoppe has been owned by Les Gardner for 30 years and has remained an Ojai icon since 1965. It is located at the “Y” (Hwy 33 and Maricopa Hwy) in the Ojai Valley. It has become a focal point for Ojai locals and tourists alike to ship packages and letters, purchase boutique wines and spirits, pick up office supplies, local t-shirts and play the California Lottery. During that time, we have grown tremendously because of our outstanding customer service and product selection, and we continue to strive to offer convenience and value to our customers.
Meet The Attitude Adjusters
The team’s 10-year history has involved many skilled players. Starting in the back row from left, the current 8-ball lineup consists of Ron Blood, a retired airline pilot new to the team this year who shows he can still bring it home on time; Michael “Iron Mike” Braun, a member of the original team; captain and team co-founder Steve Gore; Robert “The Hammer” Aviles, who joined the team in 2009; and secret weapon Michael “Quiet Mike” Scott.
Front row from left are Sami “Cast Iron Bitch” Glover, in her second year on the team; recent conscript Leana “Hellcat” Finley, a poolplaying phenom out of Santa Barbara; and Don Scott, “The Venturan,” who has been an Attitude Adjuster since 2015.
Having fun is the keynote for the team and the secret to its success, Gore said. “The camaraderie of the team is a joy.”
