►    Happy Birthday Anne-Marie on Sunday 1/24, to Thomas on Friday 1/29, and to Paul on Saturday 1/30.

►    Customer Feedback:  Customers Robert & Linda W., from Carlisle, MA stated that their general shopping experience with us was Excellent.  “Just what we were looking for.”  Did any of our team members do an unusually good job?  “Forget his name but he was not pushy.  Perfect.”  Operations and product performance were both rated Excellent.  “We don’t buy junk.  You don’t sell it.”  They would recommend us to a friend.

►    Have a great time at the Wrap Party this weekend, probably, depending on the weather.  Call the store to make sure it will be happening as scheduled.  If the store is closed, call the store, hit extension 2427, and I will change my voicemail message to tell you if it is postponed.  If you were not coming Saturday, but you can come Sunday and we switched to Sunday, leave me a message on my voicemail.

►    Advertising this week continues from last week:  “Entertain at Home”. Everything else continues also.

►    There is a very good financing sale right now on Marquis hot tubs.  Customer gives up the $200 rebate, and gets 0% financing for a year.  Or, they give up the $200 and pay us 8% more, and they get 0% for 36 months, now until February 27th.  Rules on the back of the sale sheets.

►    Did You Know… from the Coffee News: Plethora of planets: About two decades ago, astronomers were not sure if there were planets outside the Earth’s solar system.  Now, with new techniques using telescopes in space and on the ground, over 700 planets have been found, with thousands more sightings to be confirmed.

►    That’s Outrageous! from the Reader’s Digest:

You have yet to cut the apron strings. After unsuccessfully robbing a convenience store, a young man ran across the street to another store, called his mother, and asked her to pick him up.
