Interesting fact for the year: sales of Christmas items totaled $59,612.16—that’s 22% of all sales for Oct-Dec!
Volunteer: The Board of Directors credits our Day Managers and 100+ volunteers that kept their focus on our mission to support Lakeside Lutheran High School and other WELS/ELS organizations in southern Wisconsin by keeping our store 100% volunteer-run.
