Here we are again, blog fans! I feel your joy. April has been quieter than March, about 15% less business. That's probably our fault, because we've ran out of some popular items, and it's taken us a while to re-stock (we're still learning grocery store management 101). If we didn't have what you were looking for, please bare with us - we have tried to fill each and every request. Come in and check if we have it. Celine works very hard to honer each and every request - we listen to what you say (at least she does). We're also bringing in new lines, like Herbs of Light and Rainbow Light, and more supplements and personal care items. Also, some mentioned the shop was hot. That's because we share with the lighting company, and they were insisting on keeping the A/C off to save money, but now we have the A/C on all the time. Daughter Moh, who many of you have met when she is working the register, has been busy taking her finals and getting admitted to college (Mount Holyoke College in Mass - believe it or not, she wants to be a rain surgeon) so I've been here all by my lonesome each and every day, which is right and just, since I'm too cheap to hire any staff. Anyway, we're going to putting more effort into stocking quick meals and snack foods. Celine says she designed the shop for cooks, but not everyone likes to cook (yours truly included). So, look out for more frozen organic pizzas and stuff like that. Oh yeah, we've also acquired two round tables and four chairs which now happily live outside the shop, so customers can sit and enjoy a snack while they admire Main Street. We'll be putting is a snack bar with cakes, sandwiches, samosas, drinks, etc., sometime in May (that's suitably vague, isn't it?) so watch for that. I'm starting to give more news on the blog, so it will be more of a resource for you all. Check out the different informational blurbs on the side panel!
