Strange But True

Most recently, the herbal incense was moved from the basement (downstairs) to the upstairs. Before the move, we tried to warn customers by putting notes around the store. A couple enters the front door in the upstairs and stops at the first register. The girl asks, “I know that the herbal incense has been moved upstairs. But how do we get there?” She wasn’t the only one dumbfounded by the move. In the weeks to follow, several customers, even regulars, wanted to know how to get upstairs. Oh boy!
