“Two deadlines were beginning to look insurmountable. The December rent had to be paid in less than a week, and the first invoices from our suppliers – our magic “terms” – would have to be settled in a few days. If we were late to pay Zimm and our other dealers, we’d lose our credit and would not be able to keep the store stocked. I’d barely slept since we signed the lease..” — Wild Company.        photo credit: Janet Fries
