Exciting news from Annie Bloom’s Books in Portland:
We’re thrilled to announce that we are being awarded a generous grant by author James Patterson. As you may have noticed, we’ve been using the same outdated DOS-based computers since last millennium. Thanks to the grant, we’ll soon be upgrading to a brand new inventory and point-of-sales system. Ringing up your purchases and placing your orders will be streamlined dramatically, leaving us more time for what really matters: chatting about books.
We expect only one member of the Annie Bloom’s staff to be negatively affected. Sorry, Molly–flat-screen monitors are on the way!
Congratulations, also, to grant recipient Seattle Mystery Bookshop. THANK YOU, James Patterson!
