►     Tracy A. from Groton, MA sent in a service and repair report card, with 10s across the board.  She said, “In every call or visit I have been greeted and assisted with exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable staff.  Patrick has helped us on more than a few occasions and I can’t say enough about him – the BEST!”

►     Advertising, Promotions, and Sales continue from last week: Patty O’Furniture Sale.

►     Happy birthday to Ann A. on Tuesday March 20th.

►     In search of a volunteer to teach Pool School on May 2nd.  I’m hoping to go away for a few days on the anniversary of Jeanne’s death, so I’d love to not have to do it.  Thank you.

►     SABER is offering a $50 to $200 Visa Gift card as a mail-in rebate. Coupons are on the coupon shelf.

►     Do not be afraid of the Legacy web site as a competitor. They have just given their best customers a very generous compensation package for tables sold by them in our area. They give us the customer, and 75% of the selling price. We supply the table and package, but it has to be exactly the way they sold it. So likely, we will have to special order the table, the cloth, and the package.  Then, they allow us to charge 100% of their installation price; at double what Mr. Cues charges! That is a very reasonable deal for them doing all of the marketing, and much better than any deal we have been offered except from Tropitone—and we don’t have to pay for the Legacy option! So we are never actually losing  a sale to their web site.

►     March 17:  Happy March Birthday to Ann.  Help us celebrate with FREE birthday cake in the coffee  shop, while it lasts.

March 31:  Final day of our Pre-Season Patio Furniture Sale.  Best prices of the year!

April 1:  Happy Easter!  Closed all day so we can spend time hunting for eggs with our families.

April 2:  April Pre-Seasonal Pool Supply Sale begins.

April 2:  Spring store hours start:  Monday – Friday 10-8, Saturday 10-5, Sunday 11-5

►     Laughter the Best Medicine:  After photographing my client for a few minutes, I felt compelled to stop shooting and say, “I gotta tell ya, that’s a great smile you have”.

Beaming, he said, “Thanks.  I got it for my birthday”.
