This week Ballard has its neighborhood sidewalk sale event on October 1-4 from 11am-5pm. Ballard Sip and Ship will have amazing gifts significantly discounted and organized in three categories in $10, $5 and $1 sale areas. This is a great way to begin to stock up on gifts for: housewarming, birthday, new baby, wedding, anniversary, holiday and just because gifting!
We are sorry to report that last week Ballard Sip and Ship was burglarized. Two men broke through one of our windows, crawled on the floor to avoid our motion sensors, riffled through all of our cash registers and drawers looking for anything of value and left with several bins of packages. As you can imagine, Steve and I feel completely gutted especially after the police confirmed that incidents like this are happening more routinely in our neighborhoods. We are relieved that no one was hurt, have increased our building security and refuse to let the bad guys win.
We invite you to stay focused on the positive - the little lessons learned through these tough times. Sip and Ship will continue to show up for you, your business and your family with complete transparency, authenticity and integrity.
See you soon.
