Dear Retail Stores,

Experience shows that if you close at 5pm on Sundays, the most likely time for me to arrive at your store is between 5 and 6 on Sunday. Please take this into consideration when setting hours; would you make more money between 5 and 7 on Sunday or 10 and noon on Wednesday?

Mr. Bearded Curmudgeon

Dear Ten Thousand Villages,

I've heard there's some neat things in your store. I saw stuff in the window I wanted to buy today. However, apparently the only time I'm in the vicinity of Cherry Creek North is Sundays. Your policy of not being open on Sundays has so far prevented me from buying your fine merchandise.

Experience shows that if you open at 11AM on Sundays, we will show up at 10AM. It also shows that if we really really want whatever you have right this minute, you are probably closed on Sundays. Thanks ice cream store that made us settle for Baskin Robbins.

Hi there.
Ten Thousand Villages does have some really nice things. I've bought quite a few things from them myself.
I just thought I'd mention that Ten Thousand Villages has an online store that can be found by going to the website http://www.tenthousandvillages.ca/ and clicking Shop. I've purchased from the TTV online store in the past and its really easy to do and my shipment arrived super fast. They actually let me place a special order for an item that was not [normally] available to purchase online that I had seen once in a shop. Anyways, I hope this helps you get your hands on some of the things you've been seeing through the window.

When shopping for rattles and other world music products, the Internet still isn't very helpful.
