A Holiday Tradition 
Elisabeth and Charles
Elisabeth and Charles Boswell, circa 1990
Family businesses are special. How we serve our customers is in direct correlation to the way we serve our employees.

During our third month in business in December 1965, Elisabeth Boswell told her husband, father, and mother-in-law that it wasn't right to expect employees to return to work after only one day to celebrate with their families. Mom suggested that we close one extra day, allowing our staff to enjoy family time with loved ones. After a "committee meeting" lasting all of 60 seconds, they agreed. This 50 year tradition holds to this day.

Our McLean and Merrifield stores will close at 2 PM on Thursday, December 24, and will be closed on Friday, December 25 and Saturday, December 26. While some may find this inconvenient, it is our hope that everyone has as happy a holiday season as we strive to provide to our greatly appreciated and valued employees.

May you have a very happy holiday and a wonderful new year!

Charlie Boswell, Renate Eschmann, and Staff
