Best Salesperson

Mike Drake, Strange Adventures Comic Bookshop

The fact that Mike Drake was too busy helping customers to spend much time talking to a reporter probably explains a lot about the Strange Adventures manager’s win. After a bit of small talk—“It’s easy to be good at your job when you have a great boss and great customers,” Drake said—he excused himself so that he could go help with a sale. So put it down to his excellent product knowledge and customer service—or maybe what he calls “a willingness to hug my customers.” Drake is the Superman of sales people. 5262 Sackville, 425-2140

1st runner-up Jill Strong, Wildflower Clothing, 5553 Clyde, 420-0364

2nd runner-up Chris Pasquet, Biscuit General Store, 1661 Argyle, 425-5436
