The interview portion - read instructions below before proceeding
Chose 5-7 or so questions from this list that will spark an interesting answer. The idea of this feature is to showcase your store and what makes it awesome and unique, as well as to give a behind-the-scenes peek at what it takes to run a brick and mortar business.

The best kind of answers tell a story and allow the reader to connect with you as a person, and understand more about your shop, what you do and why you do it.

3-5 sentences are the best length for the answers.

Don't answer all the questions! It will be way too long! :)
