August 2018: Staff Recommendations

August 2018

As part of the store renovations, we added a Staff Recommendation wall next to the front door. It's been fun watching how seriously (and enthusiastically) staff are taking this display and their recommendations. I've had people email me a list before they go away, just in case their selection sells. We've had opportunities to pick for each other if someone is away, which gives us a chance to become familiar with everyone's reading. Staff have read each other's recommendations.

Officially summer isn't over, but with this being Road Race weekend and knowing that some of our staff members are going back to or starting school, it does feel like we're wrapping up Summer 2018. In honor of the fantastic team we've had this year, here are a few of our favorite picks from the Staff Recommendation wall. Enjoy!
