In 1993 I was working in Women’s Shoes at the south center store.
I was invited to a recognizition meeting, not knowing what I was in for!
I had been secret-shopped on a return and with my service the secret shopper gave me a “perfect” score…
Subsecquently my name went into a drawing.
Blake called my name and I jumped from my seat yelling with excitement and tears streaming down my cheeks, to claim my prize New Years in New York!
With only Blake’s sense of humor, he exclaimed that he felt like Bob Barker.
He was mine😇
