The party and you.

This Sunday is Super Bowl 54 – better known as LIV, for the youth of today who know their Roman numerals so well. (Can I even say Super Bowl? Do I have to refer to it as The Big Game so I don’t incur the wrath and punishment of the NFL legal team? For an organization that lives by our addiction to watching it, it’s silly to me that retailers can’t even use the words Super Bowl in their advertising. Hence all the Big Game references… ah, but I digress.)
I am super excited that we are not having a Super Bowl party for the first time in about 10 years. And it’s not like everyone didn’t bring something to the party. Well, almost everyone did, or at least offered. I’ll miss Phillip and Lorena’s chile rellenos, Moose’s chicken wings, and Ro’s meatballs. I won’t miss Steve’s chili with beans. But I’m looking forward to sitting my butt on the couch and actually being able to watch the whole game. Not having a party got me thinking about what in life and business I actually bring to the party. Do I bring enough for the host to keep having the party every year, or are my contributions not enough to keep the party going continually.
I think it’s a good analogy to think of our stores as the party, and what we bring to it is the thing that keep our customers coming back and partying with us. We need to keep it fresh and relevant and fun. They bring dollars and neighborhood camaraderie to the party, it’s up to us to keep it going. Party on Wayne, party on Garth.
