We’ve written before on the Stanton’s blog about our knowledgeable staff. Now, we’d like to give you a chance to get to know our staff on a more personal level. Over the next several months, we will be having members of the Stanton’s team take our “30 Questions in 60 Seconds” questionnaire. We hope you will get to know the “real” us, and learn how we might better be of service to you!
David B. is a retired high school choral director and church musician who now enjoys splitting his time between Stanton’s and spending time with his granddaughter Lily. He always greets our customers with a big smile, and you can hear his joyful laugh all the way across the store! As a part-time employee, David chose to only answer “part” of our questionnaire, so he comes in at only 26 questions. 🙂
