Okay, before some of you young whippersnappers get the wrong idea, I’m not talking about the downhill side of life…I’m talking about the downhill side of the Christmas season as it pertains to the world of retail. Once we make it through the Thanksgiving weekend it’s all about customer service and keeping the merchandise downstocked (you know, so people can buy it?).
Finally the Thanksgiving weekend is over. I know a lot of you were able to spend the weekend with family and friends. There wasn’t much of that for me this year, just a lot of working…long hours…long, exhausting hours. But we’re getting there, the end is in sight, the six day work weeks will end (eventually…not as soon as I thought they would, but still…), and I’m looking forward to a long winter’s nap…or at least an afternoon’s nap.
And I think there’s snow in the forecast for Tuesday…seems about right, it is almost December, isn’t it?
