Many of you have asked how things have been going at the Elvis shop and museum here in Worthing, West Sussex. Well, we enjoyed seeing a steady stream of people throughout our first week. Lots of locals were understandably inquisitive, and many informed us that they know Elvis fans and we were ensured that they'd be spreading the word.
We had a busy Saturday (yesterday) with customers visiting from various parts of the country including Clacton, Watford and even as far afield as Bournmouth.
The local papers were also very supportive during the week with a couple of impressive features, and BBC radio covered the opening with a live interview.
BTW, we will be open over the Easter holidays (Friday, Saturday & Monday 10am to 5pm. Closed on Sunday). I have some extremely rare, one-off and hard-to-find CDs that I'll be offering over the coming weekend. Once they are gone, that's it.
So, basically, I think the venture will be a great success and a lot of fun. I hope to see as many of you in Worthing as possible.
Can I just add that we have a great store below us called My Place, which sells a stunning range of ladies clothing, accessories and jewellery (and some really cool sunglasses!). Perhaps some of you girls might like to take a look when visiting the Elvis shop.
