1. If your LYS was only open one late night a week, would that affect your decision to go there vs other spots? Do you do a lot of your buying or browsing during the week after work?
2. Same thing with classes - if they were offered primarily on mornings and weekends, is that a bummer for you or not?
3. What's something you'd LOVE to see at your LYS that you might not too often?
4. What's the one thing that makes you travel to a LYS not near you - special yarn, accessories, book selection, atmosphere, owner personality, a coffee shop across the st, other shops nearby to poke around in -- ? anything specific that lures you a longer distance than necessary?
I know we all browse and lurk and don't comment (myself included) but if you have any feedback, it would be SOOO appreciated! I know I'm fairly transparent at this point, so for those of you who weren't at Knitsmiths, Carol and I are in discussion to buy a yarn store - there's still a lot to work out, but the above might help us with a few big Qs we've been throwing around - I'll probably also stick 'em on Ravelry soon, but I figure I'll start here -since I can barely keep my mouth shut as it is, and am dying to talk this to death and think about it all the time and have to contain myself all the time with the knitting muggles who really couldn't be bothered with one more word out of me related to anything string like!
Anyways, anyone? thanks!
