    Pros

    Always something going on constantly. This is based on time of year and what's in-season. Great community involvement as well.

    Cons

    While there is something always going on, it can be very fast paced at the store level. I enjoy this but others may not. Overall, not too many downsides!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work!
