Hello Sports Fans!
It has been far too long since the last time that we spoke. For some reason, most of 2020 seems like a bit of a blur, I can't quite put my finger on why. But towards the tail end of the year, things started to brighten up for me and Carrot Stick Sports. Now that 2021 is hear, I am more excited than ever about the future and look forward to sharing that excitement with all of you as I help you along your journey as fans.
Throughout 2020, the focus was getting the new building ready to better serve you. I continued to handle orders online from all over the country (now up to 25 states have received packages from us) as I worked to have the best brick and mortar location possible. As the year went on, I was even able to build some of our inventory to include great products for 31 different states, including the newest state in our lineup New Mexico. This gave me a new goal for the year, to have unique gifts and sports apparel for all 50 states, AND to ship to all 50 states. I think that by the end of the year we can do it.
Now that the building is reopen, I can once again start to think of ways to do my favorite part of business, meeting with people in the community. Already this year, I signed up to be a vendor at the Garden City Lucky Squirrel and was voted the Vice President of the Garden City Business Alliance. Both of those are very exciting because I will get to meet more people from the area, and find out how I can enhance their fandom. Last year, I met lots of people that were interested in Notre Dame hats, and I have since brought in 4 new styles. That is one of the reasons that I am always asking what teams people are fans of, it helps me know what to bring in, because if you are a fan, there will be other fans in the area.
Our Journey is just beginning, and I am so excited to have you all be a part of it. Everyone is welcome on the Carrot Stick Sports Band Wagon, no matter if you are looking for something with our logo on it, a team from around the country, or our very own Detroit City Football Club. Get ready for the Grand ReOpening party in April, and remember to sign up for our NEW Carrot Rewards Program, and you can start saving money every time you shop online, at the Lucky Squirrel and a variety of other ways. The Rewards will be coming to in store customers soon too.
I can't wait to see you all soon. Come on in Monday thru Friday 10 am - 6 pm or Saturday 10 am - 4 pm(ish).
