Top Shop Entrant Already a Winner

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: The great thing about our Top Shop Awards is how seriously tire dealers take it.

And sometimes, perhaps, a bit too seriously.

One recent Saturday afternoon, I received an urgent e-mail from Ed Perry, owner of Arlington Auto & Tire in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Ed was concerned that his semi-finalist entry might be a bit late – because his wife was going into labor! He was e-mailing me from the hospital.

I sent a quick note back telling him not to worry…and to get back in the delivery room where he belonged.

Don’t know how Arlington Auto & Tire will fair in Top Shop, but Ed and his wife are already winners. Baby Grace, the couple’s first, made a safe and sound entrance.
