Since we had never held an "official" ribbon cutting from the Joplin Chamber of Commerce, we decided to do it as a kick-off to the Holiday Season. It may sound early to you, but in the retail biz, you've got to be one step ahead, and that includes getting out the Christmas decor.
We had a good turnout for the day. This photo was taken after the official picture was snapped, and several people had moved off of the sidewalk.
Our Open House was on Saturday, and the weather was almost 80 degrees. We turned the air conditioner back on--high.
So---take advantage of this great weather and get some of your Christmas shopping done early. We'll show you the top 10 gifts under $25, and maybe some unique gift selections you hadn't thought about. Also, if you are in the market for custom furniture or curtains, we are very close to the Holiday cutoff, so don't wait.
