Congrats on opening up your LHBS! I live in Tupelo, and have been ordering all my equipment and ingredients online - it'll be so nice to have a local shop here!

Looking great! Is homebrewing really that big in Tupelo? I remember people liking beer back home, but never remember anyone wanting to make it.

Hey Titan88,
There are more in the area than I previously thought, which is good for me, and I hope to get more into it that may see it as an enjoyable hobby, but did not know of the quality and quantity of products out there for making excellent beer and wine at home. --- Mark F.---

I would like to thank everyone who has shopped with me. I have run my numbers for my first full month, (November), and it was good enough to cover fixed expenses and leave enough for a wage of $2.15 an hour for the whole month.
Doesn't sound like much, but was more than I was expecting.
Again, thanks to all. ---Mark F.---

Hey Titan88,
Still going along ok.
Enough sales to cover costs, but not very much over.
I have been open 6 days a week since thanksgiving, but I am about to go back to 5 soon, so as to get other chores done that I have had to let go for lack of time.

Apparently, craft beer has gotten quite popular in my hometown (New Albany) since my departure in 2007. Maybe you could put a free ad on the Buy, Sell, Trade page on FB to attract some business. I think this September will make it the 4th year New Albany has hosted it's annual "Tallahatchie on Tap" beer festival where breweries as far away as North Coast (CA) and Rogue (OR) have came and served beer. Just a thought. Glad to hear you are at least in the black.
