For the next 12 weeks a former Roanoke Times reporter will be filling in for me while I adjust to a new role: motherhood.
I will be out of the office starting today. Beginning Monday, Sheila Ellis will take on the responsibility of posting to the Storefront blog three times a week and writing the Retail Roundup column.
Sheila is taking on these duties on part-time basis, so please understand that while she welcomes your comments, questions and tips, she may not be able to respond to every inquiry.
If you have retail tips, please feel free to leave them as comments on the blog or contact Sheila at email@example.com.
For general business news, please contact metro editor Megan Schnabel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to catching up with everyone when I return!
