While many of you were mindful that yesterday was Good Friday- focused on the suffering and death of Jesus on the cross- I was selling lingerie and sex toys. And when I say selling I mean we've never sold so much product in the history of the store. Yesterday we got about 8 inches of snow, it was Good Friday and we were busy all night long. Normally we get a few strippers picking up last minute thongs and garters, a few couples looking for an interesting way to spend the weekend and a handful of young men picking up condoms.
I can't count the number of strippers we dressed last night because I learned that due to many companies giving Good Friday and Easter Monday off- strip clubs would be packed this weekend. Couples were planning weekend get-a-ways with in-laws home watching the kids...many of whom decided this weekend would be the opportune time to dabble in bondage. We sold restraints, handcuffs, ball-gags, whips, collars that read slave and master...it was insane.
We were the highest selling store in our state and third highest in the nation last night. I don’t know how packed churches were last night but I can tell you Sexy Street in the hood was THE place to be last night.
As customers left I wished them a Happy Easter….and time after time after time was their response of “oh yeah, I forgot it was Easter.”
I had never been so happy and energized on Good Friday before in my life and it wasn't just good it was "great!"
