Thrills and Spills at Springfield

May 9, 2011

Young 'Ruth' and her mom!

Our 20th Anniversary Spin to Win last month was a very exciting day. The day was very busy with the excitement of the wheel spinning and lot’s of happy customers. At the Springfield store the day was also filled with thrills and spills. 

One of the many thrills was when a young girl and her mother came back Saturday morning after shopping on Friday- to try her luck on the wheel. The young girl proclaimed that she wanted to win the ‘whipper’ (our very popular Wine Whip) for her mother. The young girl lined up like the Mighty Ruth, called her shot and took a mighty spin and nailed it… One ‘Whipper’ was won! 

The spill ocurred after I had left for the day. Mike had a customer spin the wheel and unfortunately the wheel flew off it’s base and toppled 2 shelving units- sending everything flying. Fortunately no one was hurt – Mike was a little rattled at the time but he says in retrospect it was quite exciting. A bit like something you would see in a cartoon 🙂 I’m sorry I missed it!
