Business is picking up with customers every day. We got our new phone this week (506-672-9248) so we are now much easier to reach during the daytime. I also made 20 pounds of soap in the store on Friday (Lavender for one and Citrus Wave for the other).

Wow, what a day!

After lots of hard work and help from the family, we opened our doors at 10 am this morning. It was a great day! Mrs Muffin had several customers while I was running errands. The feedback was good. Our decor received great reviews and the beautiful sunshine helped make it an all around positive day.

Much thanks to the young lass who helped me at the SuperStore. I greatly appreciate the gesture.

A big thank you goes out to Darlene for the awesome handmade card and to all the folks who stopped by and bought on our opening day.

We will be getting a phone line put in soon so that Interac will be available as well. Our store hours, for the winter at least, will be 10am - 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Thanks Dad & Sue for the help with the painting and electrical and moving everything into the store. Thanks Mom for helping us set up the product. Thanks Marc for coming over with a microwave! :) And thanks Dan for everything!

We hope to see you all at the store. Our Grand Opening celebration will be held March 3rd. We hope to be able to have it covered in the newspaper, so come on in wearing your best SudsMuffin pink, ok? Later all!

Pass the word along. We look forward to seeing you.

A very busy week at the store

Well, the store is coming along quite nicely. It's a matter of paint, paint, then paint again. After filling all 600+ tiny holes in the walls, then sanding, then priming a few times, we finally applied a first coat of finish paint today. The colour looks lively and fresh and we are madly in love with our store. We can't wait to share the final pictures! We expect to be ready to open our doors on Saturday February 10th, just in time for Valentines Day. Our Grand Opening will come a few weeks later with special invitations out to the community to join us in celebrating our opening. But you don't need to wait until then to check out what we have in store. Stop by this coming Saturday. Bring a friend even! We want the whole city to know that we are here and ready.
