It was a short drive to get over to Northville..... I'm pretty fired up! I love Opening Days.....they are such a mixture of excitement, anticipation, and general anxiety about how it's all gonna be. I found Kim and Bruce right away.....they were workin', keepin things movin'.....out front and in the back. It's such a big day, 'course the whole time I'm here, there are customers comin' and going. These guys musta really beat the streets, cuz it seems that everybody walking in had one of those coupons.....Way to go! But something else is going on too...people that live nearby have been waiting in anticipation....dropping by, wanting to say how excited they are that we are here. But too, I saw a lot of nearby business owners stop by.....they show support ya'know, that's the way it goes with people that own their own business, they know it takes a lot....and they make sure that everybody they know....knows!
Well we have some of the best trainers that I've ever seen.....that's Caroline there up top....Smilin' (as she always does), but workin' hard...reachin' for the stars! Every time I look up there is a line of people....and today isn't exactly the perfect day either....not cuz' it's April Fools, but the wind is howlin'....and it's wet all over...some how it doesn't seem to matter....people are comin' anyway! Ya' gotta to hand it to Bruce and Kim....they have done everything right....people are trained, store is stocked right up....and I love the location!
I just overheard another customer.....said.."I've been lookin' for your open sign everyday" ....music to my ears!
Congratulations.....you guys are doing great!
