New Year Well Underway

Here we are ... two weeks into the New Year ... and ... it's soooo quiet!

At work ... especially!  This is typical in retail.

Christmas is but a memory ... and now that the credit card bills for it all has landed in everyones's mailbox ... it's time to pay up ... ya think?

And ... to compound  the current situation ... we are renovating ... on a grand scale!

People who used to know where everything was ... are being challenged by having to find out where it moved to ... and while we are trying our best to help them find things ... many won't ask for help & walk out frustrated.

That is obvious on the daily bottom line ... and we are in the red ... more often than in the black.

For me ... this translates into ... Cut... cut ... cut back on hours for the staff.  Scarey how much back.

Spring is only a few months away ... and sales will pick up again then.
