I’m happy to say that we’ve made it through our first week and we’ve actually had sales. It’s a nice feeling to come to work every day and not have it feel like it’s work. Heck, even my four year old daughter wants to come to the shop and help out everyday! I’d like to thank all of you who have made it in, but also to those that have made it possible. Friends, family, and strangers, but strangers no more. Welcome home!
Les Webster and I went to a little soiree’ last night. Thanks to Thomas Chick for manning the register while we were gone. The event was hosted by DC Entertainment and was billed as a Retail Roadshow. We heard from Bob Wayne (Bob Kane/Bruce Wayne ?), Senior VP of sales, and other higher ups on what was happening with DC the next few months and into 2015. Nice presentation, came away with a few ideas, and met some of my fellow retailers. Bob is actually a part of the comic retail history here in the DFW area and is moving back this direction in the next few years. Can’t wait to meet him again.
After dropping my partner off, I came back to the shop to finish up my order for this month. Man, waiting until the last minute is no fun. I gotta stop that. You’d think that I was in high school finishing a term paper or something. To help me with that, we are going to start doing a monthly meetup and discuss products that are coming out in the months ahead, so that I can get a good idea of what customers are looking for. Be on the lookout for that.
