Wow it’s been so long since I have updated my blog, it must be June!
I thought I would do a bit of catching up with this blog. First, our season is off to a great start! It’s great to see people coming back from last summer – since we only opened in April 2008, we didn’t have a lot of repeat business until late last year, so it’s very nice to have people in that haven’t been in since last year, and this year, they’re buying more of our wine to stock up on, which we love :)
One thing that has been a big problem this year is the darn weather! If it’s not raining, it’s cold, if it’s not cold, it’s raining. The one thing I can tell all of you is that weather is the main driver of our store traffic! If it’s nice out, people are out and about enjoying the weather, but if it’s not nice out, it’s tough to get people in the store. Lets keep our fingers crossed for a nice summer and fall – it would really help out a lot of businesses here in Lake George!
Memorial Day weekend was great for us! The rain held off for most of the weekend and although not really warm, it wasn’t cold either! Memorial day weekend is our first big weekend of the summer and our first real taste of how tired out we can get! Just to give you an idea, we get here at 9:00 a.m. (sometimes 9:30 :o) ) and we usually don’t get out of here till 11:00 or later. It sure makes for some tired legs and voice!
As I am sitting here typing, Americade is going on outside, so far it’s been about the same as last year for us – a pretty steady flow of customers. Although we do appreciate having Americaders in town, I am also looking forward to getting back to some sense of normalcy! This is probably the most hectic week we have around here.
Well it’s time to get back to work, sorry for the absence and the short post. I promise to try and do a much better job now that all our spring work is done. Until next time have a great week!
