    May 14th Incident

    On Friday May 14th, an elderly couple apparently had an unexpected episode and ended up driving their SUV through the entrance of the store. 

    I am beyond happy that there were no injuries in the incident. I am planning on resuming normal business as soon as possible, but as of now playing it by ear. 

    No business plans for things like this but I ask you to keep me in your prayers.
