I love having customers visit our store be it new, returning, local or out of State. It’s fun chatting it up with them and getting to know a little bit about them.
What I have noticed since we’ve been open is there are quite a few people that have lived in Mt. Pleasant for a long time but also quite a few people that have moved here in the last few years from out of town and outside of Tennessee. Some are retiring here, some moving their families from Murfreesboro, Franklin or Florida…. the list goes on. People are seeing that Mt. Pleasant housing is still affordable, the area is beautiful, the town is quaint and they want to be a part of it.
One of the fun things about owning a retail business is that I get to meet several people throughout the day both locals and visitors. Let me introduce you to a few of our customers……….
A Local Resident of Mt. Pleasant
Meet Michelle! She’s a frequent shopper in the store. She moved here about the same time that we did. She is demonstrating that we have red carts in the store to hold all of your goods AND it rolls. This way your hands won’t freeze with frozen food purchases and you have tons of room to put all the things you love in your cart; much more room than an armload.
An Out of Town Visitor
Meet Mike Wolfe from the show American Pickers that owns Antique Archaeology in Nashville and is invested in Columbia, Tenn as well. He walked in the store and of course, I immediately recognized him from American Pickers since it is one of my favorite shows. (No, not just since he came in here as you might be thinking)
I never thought I would be the ‘star struck’ kind of person but I was. I was actually a little nervous yet thrilled he stopped in my store. But I wondered what brought him here. So I asked him and he said he heard good things about the store from people in Columbia so he wanted to come and check it out. He did some shopping, we chatted a bit and then he went on his merry way. It was a fun experience. So, you never know who might be next. People tell me Luke Bryan has a place in Mt. Pleasant so who knows? He may be my next visitor. 🙂
A Sweet Little Girl
Meet this sweet little girl. I really enjoy having kids in the store and seeing their faces light up looking at the toys or getting a bubble gum from the 1 cent bubble gum machine. While their parents shop, they have fun playing with a wind up car or emoji ball. And this little girl drew a picture and gave it to me.
So whether our customers are small, residents of Mt. Pleasant or visitors from out of town or celebrities – just know I appreciate all of you and thank you for stopping in our store.
Until next time 🙂 Angela
