Holy Crap! Retail was so terribly slow yesterday. Not one customer. These are the slow days we usually have in February. By March, the stream of lawn and garden customers is beginning to pick up. That isn't happening. Most stores in the area aren't making plan. I don't doubt a lot of it has to do with prices. It isn't like the orange retail giant I work for isn't making money. The business just is not earing them the revenue they've budgeted. In flooring, we're offering a special deal until 3/19, but it's only on the top of the line carpet and pad: 10% off. I laughed. Instead of spending $4 per square foot, they want customers to spend $7, and for that they'll take off .70. That will only fly so far.
Outside, we're under a snow warning. A band of heavy snow is moving through the area. But not here. The skies are overcast, but that's about it... except for the occasional, single flurry that has managed to make a suicide dash from the clouds.
I did skip the treadmill yesterday, but I'll be back on it today. That means I'll get my steps in. Yesterday, even without the treadmill, I managed to get 13, 889 steps in, that's because business was so slow and could do lap, after lap, after lap around the store.
Here's a pic of one of my daffodils.
When there are no customers the day can be incredibly long can't it. I always liked to be busy because otherwise being asked to do just one small thing had me rolling my eyes in the back of my head!ReplyDelete
I was pleased to get my steps in. When we've customers, I end up spending all of my time sitting at my desk.Delete

Oh, Fucker Carlson. We all knew why Kevin gave him the video: to edit it so the herd were pacified for awhile. The MAGAts do not care that the whole country (and the world) saw what happened on January 6. I wonder if there'll be repercussions??ReplyDelete
That was rhetorical.
Also, yay Daffodils!ReplyDelete
Well, the world knows Fox News lies, and even though MAGAts don't believe that, it's truth.ReplyDelete
Evidently the blow back has been rather extensive.Delete
Well if people stop buying eventually the prices will have to come down.ReplyDelete
They don't, but in the world of modern retail just about everything is a tax right-off.Delete
