Those of you who were familiar with Crackerjack in Wallingford Center may not realize that we opened that location on May 3rd, 1986 – thirty-six years ago this week!
I was not aware that we debuted during National Small Business Week, and it may be that this week dedicated to small business was created after 1986. But how appropriate!
Of course, I have been waxing sentimental this week, remembering all the fun times, challenges, employees and customers of the 34 years the store existed as a retail shop!
Many of you have expressed how you miss the shop, and I certainly miss many aspects of it, too. Being exclusively an online store has some advantages, to be sure, but I certainly miss the personal interactions with all of you, and helping you find the perfect handcrafted prize.
So, once again, thank you for all the support over the years!
