A bit of Panic is setting in

Well it is 2 days to opening and I am panicing a bit. I don't usually panic about anything but this is doing it to me. Here is what is going wrong so far. I haven't had time to set up or figure out the Debit/ Visa machine. My cash drawer and receipt printer haven't come yet. So all my high tech gadgets and I will be taking checks,cash, Visa and Mastercard on the manual machine and putting it all in a margarine container. I will have to give written receipts and use a calculator. How crude. Maybe no one will buy anything. Maybe no one will come.

The store looks great. The shelves are FULL. The bins are overflowing and everything is inventoried. Tomorrow we are going to put in the front counter, hang the sign, clean the store etc. etc. etc.

I think I have Opening a new store jitters. I think I need to go and knit.

You'll do just fine. Take a deep breath. I'm sure people will come. And the manual stuff will only be for a little while. Everyone will understand. I can't be there in person but I will be there in mind and spirit supporting you all the way!!!

Have a great day tomorrow!!!
