“I’m thrilled about the opening of the new DermStore retail store in LA,” said Dan Obegi, DermStore’s CEO. “It gives us another opportunity to serve our clientele and gives us a space where we can meet our customers face to face every day. We’ll use the DermStore retail store to test products before they hit the market, as a location for our photo and video shoots, and as another avenue for our customers to get the best products and the best service.”
