Walkabout 2002 – Free Coffee Everyday

You Want Me To Do What?Well, I woke up this morning with the text for the brochures running through my head. As soon as I finish posting this I’ll be putting it on paper.

I drove back from Daniel’s by way of Jordan’s Furniture as promised. OMG!!! Have you ever seen one of these places? I went into the bathroom and I thought I was in a five-star restaurant bathroom. They even had little birds chirping over the speaker system. You come in and they’re baking cookies. You can have free cookies, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Plus, they have little seating areas with very nice furniture set up all around this station. You could just show up and hang out for hours if you wanted. Many local business people came in just for the free coffee everyday. I went through the showroom and I’ll tell you this – these people have got it going on way better than HomeLife ever did. They understand the concept of marketing. Oh, and then there’s MOM. This is some sort of full motion ride that you can go on when it’s open (it wasn’t when I was there, so this is all I know). It’s amazing. Talk about knowing how to service customers. Wow. So I made my way to the back of the store and put in my application. They told me they have sales positions in Avon (where I applied), Natick and Waltham. So I can manage the move to the Lowell area any way I like. Cool. I’m emailing my resume.

I made it home just before the real snow hit, so it’s perfect timing there too. Now, I just have to see if the snow cancels my dinner plans for the evening. Have to wait and see how it shapes up. BTW, weather.com sucks for snow. Doesn’t tell you how many inches are expected or anything. Just says it’s snowing. – DUH it’s snowing, I knew THAT!
