Note 1: This includes a book "Money Sense Guide To Buying and Selling Your Home" at $11.15 (inclusive of tax) and a women's monthly magazine at $5.59 (inclusive of tax).
Note 2: I bought another 3 farewell cards as several more colleagues left, including one from my department. Someone mentioned that 16 colleagues have left since the new store manager took over about 2 months ago. I feel sad to see colleagues leaving, many of whom were nice to work with. On the bright side, I have been assigned more work hours in recent weeks, given the smaller staff strength.
