►     This week’s report card comes from the Billiards department, from an anonymous source.  This customer said their shopping experience, the sales help, and our operations people were all good.  They said that everyone was “very pleasant and helpful … friendly and knowledgeable”.  And in regards to how our products perform for them, “Usually good, except we bought the most expensive pool table package and the brush sheds on the table when using it”.  But they did also say that our communication is excellent!
