    Now that the election is done and gone…is business at your shop now:

    _____ Better

    _____ No difference

    _____ Worse

    No difference to worse. We are stepping up our marketing efforts and

    reorganizing. We got rid of a tech, did not seem to fit what we do at our shop.

    Our business has come to a stop since the elections.

    Not just the typical Holiday drop off, worse.

    Little difference. Decent, though still spotty. Still plenty of tension

    with those economically/politically aware. 2011 should be interesting.

    No discernible difference. I think things will stay much the way they are for the most part until the uncertainties have begun to resolve.

    Business is down and is typical for this time of the year. We are stepping up our presence in the community to draw in customers. The staff is also reviewing policies to provide exceptional customer satisfaction from S/A, Parts & Tech’s. Everyone is clean & neat, we smile and greet everyone in the shop and around town. Everyone has taken a good look at themselves on how to improve. My S/A is seeing a speech coach to improve tone of voice. I have incredible people on hand taking care of wonderful customers.
