Oliver’s father, Joe, runs and owns a little magical supplies store in Biddleton called Mr. Strickham’s. He started the store with his wife, Annie, a while back. A long while. Just before Oliver was born. However, things haven’t been the same since Annie passed away.
And his knees hurt.
It’s been nice having Oliver around working at the store. He, and the store itself, keep her memory alive. Unfortunately, they’re having trouble competing with Statim, a global company that can magically deliver almost anything within a couple hours.
To beat this powerhouse, small-business-killing corporation and save the store, Joe decides to get “on-the-line”.
If he can turn Mr. Strickham’s into an online store, maybe he can save what remains of his wife’s memory.
