In the retail business it is so tempting to push Christmas as early as possible. We all would love a few extra big sale days, but I have been a little bummed out that Thanksgiving has been pushed aside because of it. Before the decorations go up in the store and before the reminders of how many shopping days you have left, I just wanted to give thanks. To you the customers, for years of support and loyalty. To my employees, for always going the extra mile and making it all possible. To friends and family, who have jumped in to help paint a wall, cover a shift, or just understood when work came first. Thank You.

I hope you have to opportunity to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday by just toasting that you made it another year, through hard times and great ones and remember who helped you along the way.

Have a great holiday season and Happy Thanksgiving!
