That is a very nice gesture. They are a business and therefore you only owe them the money that is due. But there are also people who work at that business, and if you are friendly with them, then why not treat them like friends?
There is an Amish bike shop around here that is my go-to bike shop whenever I need help. They always, always take their time helping me. The have cut me some extraordinary deals. But more than that, they have made me feel welcome to use them as a resource to learn from them. I drop my share of money there, but I also have brought them something around this time of year to express my thanks for the patience and time they have generously given me too.
