At the same time, however, a new entrant in your marketplace is — or should be — an effective spur toward self-reflection. The trouble is, many club owners have an idealized view of what their clubs do well. As Tony Auriemma, a consultant with CMS Northwest in Seattle, says, "So many clubs don't view themselves in realistic terms; they aren't able to step back and look at themselves clearly."
Auriemma was brought in to run a chain of clubs in California some years ago, and to get up to speed he asked club managers to explain the chain's positioning. "They said, almost to a person, we're a family-oriented club," Auriemma recalls. "I asked in what way, and they said, 'Well, we're really friendly and we deliver good customer service.' I said, 'What, specifically, makes you family-oriented? What are your kids' programs? What are your family programs?' They said, 'We have child care.' That was it."

Yes.

误解了你的问题。跟 said 配搭的是“to a person”。

“to a person”是定语,每个人都一样的意思(in this case, they all said the same thing)。

可问题是,是 almost to a person,不是 almost to every person。

almost to a person应是一惯用语:

谢谢!
可是我在词典上查不到这个短语的出处。无论是英汉词典,还是英英词典。
