I recently received a hand written thank you note from a business that I totally adore. What a treat to receive this in the mail among flyers and bills especially post Christmas! Thank you to Shelley, Ron and family for making me feel that you appreciate and value my business.
In this ever increasing world of technology receiving this hand written note from their business, thanking me for choosing their shop, makes them stand out from the crowd. What is also wonderful about their business is that not only can I go to their store, but I can also have them ship to me. I enjoy the drives when I do go as I take the back way and enjoy the rolling hills and scenes that mother nature has to share. I am so looking forward to their upcoming Spiritual Farmer’s Markets this summer. If you have not visited their store which is located just north of Stettler, I highly recommend it. They have a huge selection of gems, crystals and unique items that you can’t find in other stores. They also hold workshops on a wide variety of topics.

When I was in my early teens, I quickly learned the value of a thank you note from my Great Aunt Margaret. She had sent me a gift for my birthday and I was at “that age” where I had not seen the necessity to write a note back to her. She came to visit about 3 weeks later and said, “Oh I understand that you have broken your arm.” I looked at her in surprise and said, “No, that was my cousin down the road.” Her response was, “Well you hadn’t written a note to say that you had received my gift, so I assumed it was you that had broken your arm!” I didn’t know what to say except, “I’m sorry.”
That Great Aunt taught me the power of a thank you and it is a lesson that stays with me till this day. When a business takes the time to say “Thank you for supporting us , and hand writes it, it is truly a powerful gesture in my books.
Who do you think I will think of the next time I am needing a unique gift? Whether I go in person, or go for a drive, The Crystal Ranch will be at the top of my list and mind. Thank you to the Crystal Ranch for taking the time to write this note. It truly means a lot to me.
What has been your experience with sending or receiving thank you notes?
Sending sunshine your way,
