Now, in the first flush of summer, is the time to make your shopfront truly memorable.

When people SEE your location: do they REMEMBER it?

And, even better, tell their friends about it? Stop in just to say “How nice you’re making the neighborhood”? (I had folks stopping in to ask what those pretty flowers were.)*
