For us, it was obviously a lot easier to operate one or two small stores back in the late '60s than it is to operate 21 stores and e-commerce today. Back then, it was a cigar box cash register. Today, it is point-of-sale by computer. I am a fan of change and growth, so I like today as much as I did the '60s.

What is something few people know about you?

While I am not a Buddhist, I've studied Buddhism and I identify with a lot of the teachings, especially those about how the mind works.
