The Mini Mall was bigger than ever at the 2020 ACB virtual conference and convention. So many customers — record-setting sales throughout the convention season. Thanks to all who shopped, and thanks for your patience as the Mini Mall and the ACB Minnesota office worked to replenish inventory and ship all those orders to their new owners. Huge thanks also to Patti Cox and Debbie Persons who, along with me, answered phones and took orders 12 hours each day during the convention; they also spent many hours before and after the convention handling tasks related to the placing and processing of orders. Thanks to Tony Stephens, Debbie Hazelton and the entire ACB Radio team, Sharon Lovering, Janet Dickelman, Cindy Hollis and the ACB Minneapolis office staff — you made this year one to remember.
The Mini Mall is filled with useful and fun products such as Path to the Future mugs, magnets, keepsake boxes and T-shirts; techie items like ACB chargers and power banks, wireless earbuds and Bluetooth speakers; totes and bags and organizers; even ACB jackets. New items introduced during convention season include masks in many colors, a weekend duffel bag, designer genuine leather purse, deluxe executive padfolio, roomy backpack, stemless wine tumbler, blanket, fidget cube, tangle puzzle, 5-port USB charger and a Path to the Future latte mug — all with the ACB logo.
