Hello RedFive Nation!
I'm back with another blog post!
This time its all about living with a retail location vs just being online and the subtle joys it brings. I just had another one, like a moment ago. A young customer (maybe 10 or 11) came in to look around, and after a bit he walked out, only to return with a dime he found outside. He wanted to make sure that we or a customer of our didn't lose it by accident.
This is what it's about. The power of children. I knew we would have customers young and old, but I wasn't expecting the magic, that is a group of kids coming in and being "kids", looking around, joking with their friends and its pure innocence at its best. It reminds me greatly of when I was a kid and my friends and I would visit a toy store (Toy R Us or Child World, etc...) and just walk thru the aisles all wide-eyed and happy making little wish lists in my head.
I love all the customers who come in and share their memories with us, it was one of the driving reasons for opening a physical location.
Is being a business owner hard? Yes.
Are the hours long? Oh, yeah.
Is it completely rewarding? Absolutely!
I look forward to seeing you all on your next (or first) trip to the store!
