As you may have noticed there is a new sign in front of the building. The billboard states “building for sale.”
Yes, I am selling the building and no, I am not moving the store. When the building is sold, the store will be closed down.
When will that be? To be cheeky – when the building sells! That could be tomorrow or that could be in a year. Who knows, I wish I did. It would make my life easier.
In the meantime, the store runs as it always has. We are still buying all the food products and all the small cookware and the linens. We are just not buying the larger cookware items.
And we are also taking advantage of the waiting period to get rid of display items and things we no longer need. Stuff sure builds up in the back when you aren’t looking!
And me, I just woke up one day and said, “I don’t want to do this any more.” After 21 years I am tired of the long hours and constant responsibility. I am not ready to retire, so I will go get a job, and then have time to think about what kind of future I want.
So till the building sells, the store still operates. And there are good deals on stuff – from my place to yours.
Scoop N’ Weigh, the Candy Store for Grownups!
P.S. Easter stuff is out, including these cute paper napkins.
P.P.S. If you are worried about where you are going to buy your favourite things, I am doing the same thing. There are a lot of things I use from this store, that I don’t think you can buy in any other store in Winnipeg.
P.P.P.S. Besides, I am going to miss writing these newsletters. When I am writing them, I have a mental picture of you reading them. I like the way you smile and shake your head. We have all been in those same situations!
P.P.P.P.S. MERINGUE POWDER HAS JUST ARRIVED. After I politely told a customer there was a shortage and we couldn’t get it!
