Bad news from our friend Seth Godin (Seth's Blog). The Pope's not coming to your store. He may be in the U.S., but he has a very tight schedule. The chances of him blowing off other commitments to go shopping are pretty slim.
The point of all this is that if the Pope were coming to see you, you would pull out all the stops to make the place look as nice as possible. And you and your staff would be glad to do it. It would be fun. But, just because he isn't coming doesn't mean you can't have just as much fun making your store ready for your next customer.
