They closed the wrong store. They should have closed the Summit store and kept the Leeds location. Earl is awesome and will be missed. They offered him a seasonal part-time job at the Summit. He politely told them that was not acceptable. He is looking forward to a break.
A well deserved break indeed. Looking forward to seeing your haul. Only wish I could have gotten there before the accessories got cleared out.
Bought a bunch of shoes from Earl, asked him countless questions about fit, pricing, sales, etc., and referred multiple people his way. Earl would always tell me that one of these days I needed to come visit him and we would try on every pair of shoes in the store. And he genuinely meant it! Just wish the store would have stayed open long enough so that I could have made it there. Funny, I've never met Earl in person, but I've had so many interactions with him, I felt it was important to call and thank him for all of his assistance and wish him well.
Wish I received half the service Earl gave me while at my local store...
