Nov. 7, 2019

And in the blink of an eye, we are in November. November is that in-between month. The upheaval of back to school is long behind us and the retail world is trying to remind us that Christmas is at our doorstep, but it’s not the holidays yet. The weather could be nice, but it could also be bitterly cold. Regardless of how you feel about November, things at North Point keep moving forward.
