Frustration Sale


When we walked by this sign, I almost missed it. One sees so many "Sale" signs they have come to lack meaning. But I did a double-take. And laughed. The owner(s) of this shop (which I believe was a gift shop of some sort) must be totally frustrated to the point of dumping it and moving on. So, if you have $165,000 plus, c'mon down and take it over.

I think running my own store would end up becoming frustrating!

The last thing I want to do right now is work for a living. . . been there, done that! I responded to you frustration on my blog re. the Washington Avenue Bridge by the U of MN. It was NOT covered and enclosed when you and I were there!

I used to work in retail, both as a clerk and as a store manager, and I would not want to work in retail anymore, especially since I see so many stores closing these days. Great catch, Lowell!

I'd like to think they're facing inventory and have thought of a way to make things go more easily.

Owning almost anything in today's market might be frustrating. Or maybe they are retiring from Florida and moving to Minnesota----LOL!
