Say hello to Mavis! Mavis is a 2 year old Lab mix who began going to Barnes Jewelry in Amarillo, Texas with her human Bill Archinal (COO/General Manager) while they were closed due to COVID-19. Upon their recent reopening, Bill was a little concerned how she might behave if he left her at home by herself, so he took her to work. Talk about silver linings – she’s been a huge hit with both staff and customers. Kids coming in love playing fetch with her. She has two soft, store friendly toys, so there’s no damage when tossed across the store. Mavis has only barked twice – once at a customer with a very full white beard and the mountain of a man who is their UPS guy. They have since become friends. Mostly she lays around waiting for the door counter to ring so she can greet the next person coming in. “Bringing Mavis to the store with me may be the best thing I’ve ever done in the way of solidifying job security,” says Bill.
