3,489.
.
That’s how many different people have come in our doors to shop with us since TRIAD opened.
.
We made a post about our 3 year anniversary a couple days ago, told our customers how much we appreciate them, but I don’t know if we were able to express just how much. Not as a whole, but every, individual, person.
.
I can remember days when we first opened that we would be there from 8am to 8pm without a single person to walk through the door.
.
I’ll be honest, I have this irrational fear on days we don’t have a customer for the first couple hours that we’ll have another day of no customers. Even though we haven’t had a day like that in 2.5 years.
.
This is why we got out in the community, met people, helped them, and told them about the store. People didn’t just come in the door, we went out and told them about it. Still, 9 out of 10 of those people would never come by.
.
We have obviously done our fair share of work here, but no matter how much we do it is not up to us. It is up to the you guys, the customer, to decide to come in and shop with us.
.
So on some of those very first days, when we would go hours without seeing a customer, we might have someone decide to stop by before the end of the day. We always appreciated the hell of that person, especially since sometimes they were the only customer for the day. Today the store is more busy than that, but we do our best to appreciate every single person that walks in the door just as much as we did that person that was the only one to come in the store the entire day.
.
All of these people (you guys), all 3,489 customers are the reason we are still and business and moving forward.
.
Thank you.
