As you can see there is no snow in northern Illinois affecting sales at the shop. Fewer skis and snowboards are coming for tunes so we had to give our back room helper Joey a project to keep him busy. Having a person holding a sign gets noticed more than a sign in the parkway and it gets through a loop hole where the village requires a permit for signs posted in the ground. Joey kept warm out front of the store in his (sold out) Salomon Zero freeski jacket and the matching Salomon Intuition Insulated Pants. Several new customers resulted from Joeys efforts. Thanks Joey!
