Misc April in review.
We survived April with not too many problems. Despite the shorter hours, mail orders and orders picked up at the door are bringing in enough to pay the bills. Getting a bit short of some products but we are working to find suppliers who will ship to Canada without exorbident shipping charges.
Not an ideal situation but better than being closed. Looking forward to the day when we can let a few people into the store at a time to shop.
Stay Safe and Healthy out there.
