Change in the Weather

I should have known better. As I put on a short sleeve shirt this morning my wife told me it was going be cool today (she’s always right, and of course I wore the shirt anyway). Well, after the rain, it dropped into the 60′s. Bizarre that it feels a little like fall. I know it’s a stretch but here goes. Now is actually a good time to begin your fall shopping. “But now in the middle of August?” you ask. “Besides I’m at the beach for the rest of the month.”

Well in fact there is good reason as a couple our customers found out this past weekend. When the time comes that you decide to make the purchase of a pair of shoes you’ve been dreaming about but have been putting off until fall, or the leaves start changing color and it’s time to toss the flip flops nothing can be worse than not being able to do so because someone else has beaten you to it.

Sure Church’s and Weston have in stock programs so we can restock quickly, but all the other manufacturers take 12-20 weeks to produce a pair. So if you miss it now we are happy to order a pair for you but you won’t have it just now, and what’s more gratifying than the rush of walking out of the store with a kick ass pair of shoes that you picked up before someone else?

I know it sounds ridiculous but believe me it will happen to someone and it won’t be fun when it does. If that doesn’t move you much right now I completely understand, but don’t say we didn’t warn you.
