Early Birds Sent Us Soaring

Dear Friends:

Our very first customer back in 1991 peaked his head inside the doorway as we were still setting up shelving units.

we're fortunate indeed!"Got any oilers?" he asked, smiling as he glanced at our initial inventory of bird feeders and such. A few minutes later, Dennis Setarski hauled fifty pounds of sunflower seeds to his car. What he left behind, though, was delight & joy. Perhaps it's an omen, we thought - ringing up our first sale without even displaying our 'open' sign.

We're indeed fortunate. It's fun meeting new customers everyday, but it's even more fun seeing longtime friends like the Setarski's who continue to visit J.J. Cardinal's.
