Yes, the economy sucks.
In the last couple of weeks, customers have been coming in to our store asking us when our last day is.
Pier One may close some stores, but seeing as we are consistently in the top three (often number one) in our region, our location will not be one of them.
I am safe.
And hopefully advancing again, soon.
What we DO need at our store is more employees. In the last month a bunch of people have quit. Apparently their not fond of actually working. Most of them didn't bother to officially give notice, either. They just stopped showing up.
