    I am not currently seeking employment but I have a question and was not sure how or where to pose it. I like most women love your stores. i live in Sand Springs Oklahoma, A smallish to midsize town. We have no stores to purchase decor such as yours or products such as Bibles and religious materials without driving to Tulsa. I would like to request that in the future as you grow, PLEASE consider Sand Springs as a potential market for your products. It is not unusual to see on the Sand Springs page that I am not alone in wishing for your stores to be here. Thank you for your kind consideration.
