►     Marie from Pelham sends us this, “My shopping experience was good.  I got waited on right away, then he let me look on my own.  Matt, Ann, and Mia all were very nice and returned my calls.  Everyone was very pleasant, with good service, and suggestions for people.  I’d like to see more unusual pieces or accent tables.  Everything I purchased was great except the patio table that fills up like a swimming pool.  I will be on my 3rd patio table.  It would be nice if I could be compensated for this inconvenience.”

►     Have a great time at the wrap party tonight!

►     Napoleon grill prices went up a lot for 2019, so the sale has been adjusted effective January 3.

►     Advertising, Promotions, and Sales will continue from Wednesday:  Family Fun Savings.  This month’s color is grey.

►     When will we close with Eric and Anna?  Will we ever close with Eric and Anna?  I have no idea.  Apparently, we can not even ask questions until the President reopens the Small Business Administration.  Then we can find out if we have to re-count the inventory, and when they will allow us to close.  And I have to decide if I want to go ahead with it.  At some point, we are so close to April that we should just start over.

►     Does anyone know who customer Rosana Vargas is and why she doesn’t like us, based on a Google Maps review?

►     January 19:  Happy January birthday to Tod, Paul, and Maggie.  Help us celebrate with FREE birthday cake in the coffee shop, while supplies last.

         February 2:  Groundhog Day

         February 14:  Happy Valentine’s Day!

         February 18:  Presidents’ Day.  We’re open our normal hours.

Bus Driver:  “Everyone remember to keep your headphones plugged in.  From the looks of all of you, I can already tell I hate your music taste.”
