The Retailer’s Perspective: A trip down memory lane

I recently went to my 30th high school class reunion and gave the keynote address at the big formal event Saturday night. My presentation was supposed to rattle some long dormant memories, bring a smile to your face, and help you remember “the good ole days”. I had so much fun putting that together I thought I’d do the same thing with my column this month.

The Retailer’s Perspective: Water, water everywhere - but not a drop to drink

On May 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of 2010, Nashville, TN experienced what is known in emergency response circles as an MCI - a Major Catastrophic Incident.  We fell victim to the worst flooding in the US in years.  In a 48 hour period, middle Tennessee received the greatest amount of rainfall in recorded history and everything flooded.  I now know what Noah must have gone through.  So, I thought I’d share a ‘feel good’ story or two (or three) with everyone.

What is it about lunch and craziness? One second I’m sitting outside on the patio of my store having a nice lunch (a Greek salad with grilled chicken, extra feta cheese, and some of those grape leaf thingies) and the next second all hell breaks loose.

The Retailer’s Perspective: The importance of March 9th

Usually, while writing my column, I’m projecting myself 30 - 45 days into the future.  Normally I’m trying to visualize when the paper will hit your mailbox and what will be going on in your life at that time and I try to write something topical.  Every now and then I even get it right.  Today is different though.  Today, I’m only projecting myself 5 days into the future.  Today is March 5, 2010.
