There's a story here.

There’s a story here.

To say we’ve been open since 1968 isn’t enough. We have to give that time, dimension. Otherwise, we just come off sounding, well, old. We are seasoned and proud of it but our thinking has to be new. Hell, we’ve been through more hurricanes than Pat O’Brien’s on a Saturday, and we’re still here. Still standing.

Our strength comes from a center that the big box boys just don’t have. What is it? We have a story…

A story with a whole cast of characters. Millions are in the books we sell, but look more closely. You’ll find them in our aisles, behind the register and camped out in the café. You see, there’s no need to create some mystique when you’ve been around this long. It’s here.
