It shows up as a list on this end. Try checking cookie or session settings, if any.

You can choose whether grid or list view be set as the default via the WooCommerce settings screen:
WooCommerce/Settings/Products/Default catalog view.

I don't see any option for anything related to catalog view in the Products tab.

Sorry Trevor Local, I forgot to mention that this is for the Plugin "WooCommerce Grid / List toggle".

Ok I tried installing that plugin. It defaults to the grid view. It didn't work on my site, though. And it also adds another "toggle view" content to the page, which jacks it up.

Yes, you can't use both.
This grid/list toggle is in /wp-content/themes/crispy/js/functions.js
Search for // The toggle
Therefore you should check your theme's settings, maybe an option exists to set default view.

DEACTIVATE / remove BOTH toggles from your page; then, [redo] these steps:
1. GOTO
http://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-grid-list-toggle/
2.    Upload woocommerce-grid-list-toggle to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
3.    Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
4.    Choose the default setting on the catalog tab of the WooCommerce settings screen as GRID
5.    Done!

eemit - I have the original version of the functions.js file, so I will compare that vs current. There's no option within the theme, I already asked the author.

I knew script pattern of plugin "WooCommerce Grid / List toggle" and that your theme must have similar script. Firebug has helped in Search.
