the other side

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." Charles Dickens

shopping Pictures, Images and Photos
This is the most anticipated and most dreaded day in retail. It is the day that we plan for months in advance. We plot strategy like a general plots military moves for an all important battle.

We wonder if we'll have enough staff, too many staff, the right sales items, not enough of the right sales items, a welcoming atmosphere, enough change from the bank, enough bags and toilet paper, bright smiling faces, a servant's heart.

All of these things factor into your visit on black Friday. It's like we are inviting you to our house for the day and we want to be sure that you get what you need while you are here. We don't want anyone to leave disappointed. Or angry. Or offended.

So I hope to see some of you visiting our house this Friday. I'm praying that we might be able to serve you in some way. And if you get a moment, say a little prayer for us. After all, it can be "the best of times or the worst of times."

Happy shopping!

I cannot imagine working retail on this day! My niece is in retail, she goes to bed by 7p Thanksgiving evening.

Lord Jesus, I lift up all those across America today who are working at our stores and restaurants. I pray they can keep a smile on their face and ask You to keep them filled with Your peace and joy. I ask You to refresh their backs, legs, and feet. Let the patrons see You in them. In Your name I pray. amen.
