Mutch Moments...Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/voices/mutchmoments.html
Borrowing from a slightly more famous David, below you'll find the Top Ten moments experienced while wandering around David and Sandy's store with microphone in hand.
Number Ten--"Thanks for asking..."
Mutch Hardware is known as a place where you can find that hard-to-find item--but they don't have everything, and David Mutch has a book to prove it.
Number Nine--"That's a good baseball man..."
David Mutch loves baseball. Here he takes a moment to educate a customer on why her $30.30 bill represents a pretty special ball player.
Number Eight--"He was how you do it..."
Sticking with baseball, David explains one of the many pieces of baseball memorabilia found in the store--in this case, a ball signed by Minnesota Twin great, Tony Olivia.
Number Seven--"Where's my fan..."
Sometimes putting the customer first is not such a great idea.
Number Six--"This operation started in 1926..."
Almost by definition, third places have long and storied histories. Mutch Northside Hardware is no exception--here's the two minute version.
Number Five--"Dave or David..."
Some call Mr. Mutch Dave, others David. He's fine either way, but he does have preference.
Number Four--"She's a very pretty girl..."
David and Sandy respond to the question: How would you describe one another?
Number Three--"It's probably the kids' introduction to slot machines..."
David describes one of his favorite items in the store, the gumball machine.
Number Two--"When people come in, they came in..."
Walk into Mutch's and the old wooden screen door will slam hard behind you. David Mutch likes it that way.
Number One--"A good excuse not to go to a fashion show on ice..."
David and Sandy have been married for over 30 years. Here's how they met.
