Retail can be a challenging job. But I love it. One of the joys of owning your own small business is knowing your customer's families. Their parents, their kids, even their pets. It is always a special "gulp" to me when I see a teenager walk into the store without a parent. I look around, search the sidewalk, then I notice the car keys in their hand and go NO WAY!!! Students grow up, go away to college, some still pursue their music others don't, but they all stop back in to say hi when they are home from school. I love it. And let's not even talk about when those kids bring their kids in for lessons!. So thank you dear patrons for being my extended special "family" .
