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 13. I know that seems like a long time, but it'll actually only be 10 editions that I'll be missing.

Which reminds me ... Happy July 4th!

This will give me some time to recharge the batteries a bit … do a little jogging, a little hiking. a little reading, a little biking, 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, and I hope you'll welcome me when I return on July 13 with all new stories and commentaries. Between now and then, 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…

Fins Up!
