and i find myself feeling very sentimental and proud of it, and us, and everyone who had helped us stagger forward.
let me tell you, grocer-ing is not for the faint of heart.
but boy, we're doing 10 times the job today we were when we opened. our produce is prettier. our selection better. our prices more consistent. we have value-added products galore... casseroles, soups, salads, ice cream. we carry things i didn't think we would because we listen to our customers.
this has been the best graduate school ever.
and my hope is, when we leave here, that the btc will carry on without me. that it will go on selling great food to the people of our small town for many, many years to come.
