►     This is our last week closing on Wednesdays.  Starting March 1, we are open Monday-Wednesday 10-6, Thursday and Friday 10-8, Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-5.

►     Lynda L. from Manchester had this to say about her experience in the store… “5 stars!!  I went in for a hot tub and saw great prices and bought it on the spot!  If I could have, I would have bought ping pong, darts, hockey, etc!”  She said that Kristine did an especially great job and was “incredibly helpful, with outstanding service – follow up and knowledge especially.  Once I connected with Kristine, she was the person I dealt with from start to finish … no run around!”  She also said “the water lab person (young, UNH student taking a semester off) was extraordinary!”  Lynda said she would definitely recommend us to a friend because, “Best service I have ever had with a purchase.  Period”.  In regards to what we do really well she had a list for us!  “1.  The sale packet.  2. References (blue book) for electricians, etc. (Joe C. was terrific!!) 3.  Your service and knowledge and follow-through is exceptional.  4.  Keep up the good GREAT work!”

►     Laughter The Best Medicine: Holiday travels not living up to expectations?  Borrow one of these complaints collected by travel agents:

  • There was no sign telling you that you shouldn’t get on the hot-air balloon ride if you’re afraid of heights.
  • I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment with our friends’ three-bedroom apartment, and ours was significantly smaller.
