Several years ago my wife, Carol, and I qualified for a free trip to England and Ireland by buying a large quantity of appliances to sell at our Poston Furniture & Appliance stores.
I like to say we won the trip, but my dad said, “You paid for it in the cost of washers, ranges and refrigerators.”
(We decided to lower our selling prices in order to sell enough to qualify.)
In our travels, after seeing many recognized attractions, we always left the tourist crowd and mixed with the locals.
