Beyond the Pretzel Bowl
A little history about our newsletter—do you know why it's called Beyond the Pretzel Bowl? Well, we've served pretzels in a big communal bowl since the day Sue started the store 45 years ago. Reading takes brain power! Pretzels are fuel. We've pacified small babies, hungry teachers, and wandering stomachs with a snack. It's simple and it works (and we also offer a glass of water). So when you stop by, dig in into the bowl and a good book!
