MADISON, Wis.–The Henry Simon Fine American Furniture store here will close its door as staffers hit the slopes on what was forecasted to be a snowy winter’s day.
Yesterday, in advance of approaching snow in the area, the store owners decided to add some levity to the work week and gave the staff a break to go skiing. Shop owners posted a sign that read: “If you’re crazy enough to be out in this weather, please join us at Tyrol Basin for a ski day—WE’RE CLOSED.”
“The weather has given us all an opportunity to spend a little extra quality time with family, friends and customers, too. Isn’t that truly what the holiday spirit is all about?” said Sam Boeke, one of the owners of the store.
