Day 1 - New Store
Oct 20, 2009 | Written by Anupa Mueller
We were still unloading deliveries when the first customer walked in yesterday, at the dot of 11 am - we had to photograph it! After the many oohs and aahs at our new floor, new colors and bright, cheery tea room, we proceeded to take orders, make tea and serve food, all the while trying out new systems and procedures. This is why it's called a soft opening (as opposed to a Grand Re-opening). We soon began noting the changes we needed to make before the weekend rush. We've dropped one e-mail blast yesterday to our Loyalty customers and our online customers in the tri-state area as well as friends and family telling everyone we're open. We've already received many messages of thanks and congratulations and a few baskets of flowers. Thank you all! Over time, you will see pictures on the wall and the shelves filled with accessories. Till then, come in and enjoy our tea, food and hospitality.
