WATSONVILLE — Over the past decade or so, granite, marble and other stone for such things as countertops and shower stalls has become de rigueur for anyone looking to add a little class to their home or business.

In Watsonville, Riva Marble & Granite has been producing those, as well as kitchen and bathroom countertops, shower stalls, fireplaces and stairs for more than two decades.
