Yeah, you know, my mom was surprised when I was telling her about what happened. I guess Erik's started in MN as a small shop and now it's branched out into several states. There was an article in the paper that she had read recently that said the reason why Erik's was doing so well was because they had such great sales people. Initially a different guy had come to help me, but I asked him to come back in a few minutes. The not-so-great guy got to me before the other guy came back.. Oh well. At least someone will hear about it, even if they don't do anything about it..
