Best Store Ever
There is a Chinese saying, “A man that cannot smile must not open a shop.”
We’ve all been there, where the proprietor glares at you, ignores you or worse yet, is rude to you. Sometimes the employees exhibit such behavior and I wonder if the owner knows. In these crazy times when it is so easy to order online, such businesses will not be around for long.
But I want to tell you about a different place, the best store ever in fact! This gem is a tack store located in Jerome, ID.
The Shoe & Tack Shop is run by the nicest people. I know they are crazy-busy, you can tell by the stacks of shoe and saddle repair orders, but they always have time to stop what they are working on to help you and converse a bit. I have been in this store many times and the friendliness and courtesy is above and beyond.
After our first visit to the store my husband and I thought about what else we could buy or bring in to be repaired, because we enjoyed the proprietors so much and wanted to support them. How many businesses have you visited where you left wondering when you could visit again and what you might purchase to support the place? It’s my pleasure to recommend this store; it is chock full of tack, jewelry, boots, clothing and much more. Did I mention they are excellent at shoe and saddle repair? Check it out.
