As a retailer, don’t forget to give back to your community. It is the members of your community who need you as much as you need them. We have selected the Columbus Christian Women Organization as an important community charity for The Silver Barn. We thank them for all they do to help promote our store and in turn we did our 2009 ornament to benefit their organization – today they got a check for $450. This weekend we will be auctioned off! Yes, we are presenting a candlelit dinner for 10 this spring. I believe the more we give, the more we will get back. I hope every retailer feels the same way. Corporate retail donations are great, but giving of yourself pays back large dividends you can only imagine.
