I guess this is a little incestuous, but the idea for this column came from reading Sharon Harrison’s “Ten Shops, One Question” in the June issue of this prestigious rag. The question was “What type of bearings are skaters in your shop buying?”
- “Hey, I’ve been in this business a long time and have a good gut for it.”
- “We just buy what the customer wants.”
- “We don’t have the system to track that.”
- Etc., etc., etc.
