Here comes Summer
Like clock work Memorial Weekend kicks off the summer season in Leavenworth. It's funny how that works- it's like a curtain is lifted and our customers immediately shift from large convention like work groups to families with 2.5 kids. I like it though.... it's nice to have various "seasons" of customers to suite various "seasons" of weather.
The other nice thing about retail seasons is the product change. Honestly- after you have folded the Same Stack of jeans or steamed and re-hung the same sweater dress you get very anxious for new new new product to feast your eyes (and merchandising fingers) on.
Building up to the holiday weekend I cracked the retail whip and hustled in some new summer treats. So glad I did because we had surprisingly sunny (no rain) weather in Leavenworth. With the sunny weather comes an appetite for summer dress', light weight tanks, and sandals - all of which Mapel had full stock in.
Wine Walk. Enough said- right?
