Aaron is a hard guy to get to sit still and answer a few questions. He's always running around the store working on our never ending to do list, and always has a smile on his face while doing it. He is our in-house jokester, with sarcastic comments and witty one liners always ready. (One time I actually had a dentist appointment at TOOTH-HURTY... 2:30... and I'm pretty sure it made his day.) So I finally pulled him into my office and interviewed him for our employee spotlights! Meet Aaron!
