It is with humble gratitude and appreciation that I extend a sincere thank you to all our loyal customers who have kept us afloat in these difficult last two years. Every sale, referral, endorsement and kind word from our dedicated customer base has helped us to remain in business.
Being in the middle of nowhere it has surprised us how much walk in business our little store has done. In addition to visits from almost every state in the union we have had customers from New Zealand, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, France, Germany and Scotland.
We have a composite full size junk motor cycle sculpture hanging from a sign in front of the store. We noticed that people did not notice it: “What motorcycle? We didn’t see any motorcycle.” So we hired Russell Rigsby our local derelict hippy artist, hot rod builder to make us a little more conspicuous with a slightly larger bike above the store.
Now that the employees are all managers of some sort I have been able to focus on the more important aspects of running the business: helping to remove all the vestigial wires, pipes, ducts boilers etc. and hauling them to the scrap yard. (Copper is $3 a pound)
Installing a hedge to protect ourselves and our customers from our southern neighbor, Nathan, a mechanic at the local Harley shop who owns a bike and is covered with tattoos.
My excellent staff often expresses appreciation for their jobs. Ultimately this appreciation must be passed on to you our customers – the backbone and pulse of Fox Creek Leather.
Thank you and Happy New Year.
