*Please continue to tell everyone who shops with us to make note that we are closed on Wednesdays.*
The shop birthday is approaching and we need to inform and encourage customers to sign up for the Patty Lyons classes. Please read the newsletter and website to familiarize yourself with Patty and these classes so you can talk about them to customers. If someone seems interested but maybe needs a little nudge to sign up, offer them a 20 percent discount (use the coupon PLYARN).
Sarah wants as many of the employees as possible to be in some of the Patty Lyons knitting classes and especially the lecture so that you can hear and learn info even (especially) if you are not a knitter. There is no charge and Sarah will pay you to be there as long as you agree to really focus and try to learn something from it. Of course, we do have to cover the schedule so if you are not on it, please try to go to a class. If there is a specific class you would like to attend, please email Sarah ASAP to let her know.
The Merrily quilt sample was in the office along with a kit. Any idea why this was done? This is how we miss out on sales. It's critical that we not remove kits and samples from the floor unless directed to do so by Sarah.
Please remember to turn on all the lights in the morning.
And please remember to set the thermostats to 80 and hold on Tuesday night.
If a customer in the store wants to purchase an out-of-stock item that will need to be shipped, please ring up the sale separately from the rest of her/his items. When shipping is added, the sale shows up in our Orders area within the POS and everything in the sale is listed -- not just the special order item. If just the special order item(s) are rung up in a transaction, it reduces the chance we'll cut yardage that's already been cut and sold to a customer.
