And while we know you want the scoop on the latest and greatest, we also know your hands are full just managing your shops. So while it's tempting for editors and writers to ascend an ivory tower now and then, we need to talk with--and listen to--the people who manage storage day in and day out. That's why we're frequently on the phone with some of you, and why we corner even more of you at conferences and trade shows. The storage shows held each spring provide us with a great opportunity to hear what's going on in your shops.
