August 1, 2015

►    You have already started some sale price early, because it takes so long to set up for the sale. Remember, clearance means clearance. Prices will go up when we get low on the item. All sales are first come, first served. No rain checks. Customers should buy now. We have no plans for any prices to go lower this year. Orders, are at ORIGINAL prices.

►    Customer Feedback: Customer Ronald D. of Hudson, NH stated that his general shopping experience with us was Excellent. “Because staff is knowledgeable and professional.” Did any of our team members do an unusually good job? “Tod and ?Pat? Unsure of name.” Sales help and operations were rated Excellent. “Patient and friendly.” Communication and product performance were both rated Good. “The cover is too new to tell. Pump and motor are great and quieter.” What do we do really well? “Always correct advice and don’t push to buy.”

►    Advertising, sales, and specials all start Sunday, August 3: “August Clearance Sale”. This month’s color is pink.

►    More Ways to Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity:

  • Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.
  • Five days in advance, tell your friends you can’t attend their party because you’re in the mood.
  • When the money comes out of the ATM, scream “I won! I Won!”.
