retail news in context, analysis with attitude

As is my custom at this time of year, I'm going to be taking some time off…

MNB will be on hiatus from now until Monday, July 14 … which seems like a long time, but it really is only 10 editions of MNB that I'll be missing. (I would've taken next Friday off for July 4 in any case.) I hope you'll welcome me back with open arms when I return.

This will give me some time to recharge the batteries a bit … do a little jogging, a little hiking. a little reading, some eating and drinking, a little hanging out with my family, and a little enjoying of the great Pacific Northwest.

But I'll be back … MNB will return on July 14, with all new stories and commentaries. Between now and the 14th, the MNB archives will, of course, be open. And, I may post the occasional note or picture on Facebook if the spirit moves me … sometimes I can't help myself!

Thanks…I hope you'll also get some time this summer to recharge your batteries.

And, as always…
