Hi folks, I'm Chris Reece the owner of shoppersmap.com. We're not a website-we're real people and we're based out of the Historic South Rose Park neighborhood in Long Beach, California. I'm an entrepreneur, musician and community leader raising my three boys with my lovely wife.
In addition to my interest in antiques-I'm second generation in the business-I own and operate a local restaurant/bar called the Pike. It's located at 4th and Cherry and we feature great seafood at very fair prices, have a full bar and are home to the finest musicians in the area. Drop in and say hi anytime-everybody knows me.
In addition to my business and community interests I'm still an active musician. I was part of the first generation of punk rockers and spent many years with the band Social Distortion. I no longer tour with Mike and the boys but I'm fortunate to be an alumni of such a well respected band. I have a vital interest in the Social D community and am proud of our place in rock and roll history.
Here at shoppers map our goal is to help our local antique and retro dealers let the world know what they have to offer. Pictures and commentary can't replace the experience of physically visiting the stores but we hope to give as much of a feeling of the experience as possible. We're hoping whether you are in Pomoan or Düsseldorf, Germany you'll want to make a visit to our historic district part of your travel plans.
Please look around and discover our little corner of the world and dont hesitate to comment, ask a question or buy something from my neighbors and friends. Most of all we'd like to see you in person so you can really soak in the special vibe we feel is unique and really cool.
