This was our first day doing business. Are you in one of this picture? That was all our inventories. It was very sad then. Understandable many of our peers at the time gave us 6-9 months. LOL

How far you’ve come along is pretty amazing! Great photos, and may you continue to have great success!
It has been an amazing experience. Never thought of doing this but glad I did it. Money is good but I have to work hard for it. Wish I am my 30s or 40s but unfortunately I am in my late 50s so instead of looking to go bigger, I am looking for a way out. LOL

You may just need a partner. Think of different ways to do business so you don’t have to work as hard. Don’t get me wrong I understand that there is always a lot of work in taking care of aquatic life but I imagine more so in running the store as well

Your store is a staple in the community and you have done a fantastic job for so long. I’m sure many don’t want to imagine you not part of the community.

All the businesses I've done in the past had been just me. At my age and my desire to travel a bit before I get too old to walk, I think I would be warm to the idea of a partner that can take some active part in the business or possibly sell the business out right. There is so much potential in this business that I did not tapped into because unable to find enough help. A right partner and more help could push this company to another level.
