Reflections on the Steel Horse Rally 2016
The Steel Horse Rally 2016 has come and gone. Patsy and I want to sincerely thank all of our loyal customers and friends who came to visit, braving rain, hail, lightning, thunder, and dark of night. We appreciate you. Thanks also to our kids, Lori, John, Amanda and Ron, without whom we wouldn't be home yet. They worked like troopers helping us set up, tear down and haul. And thanks to our loyal customer who stayed until midnight Saturday helping us tear down and pack.
We met a lot of new folks at the rally, and many of them took the seven minute ride to the store. We hope to see more of them in the future.
If you were at the rally, you know that this year we had competition from a large out-of-town leather dealer. A company like that can easily undercut our prices, and they did. When the rally ended, however, they boogied back to Texas, and we're still here. That's the big advantage to buying local. We stand behind our merchandise, and we're always available. You can come to us with problems and we'll take care of them right here in Ft. Smith with no hassle.
All things considered, we had a great rally, and look forward to 2017.
