	You say local groups in your area have had trouble selling coupon
books, is this because there isn't a Straw Hat in the area? Or is it because
Straw Hat just isn't as popular as it used to be?

its good to know that we will be getting one in the suburbs of Fresno,
unfortunately like many things in Fresno not real accessible to public
transit. It seems like a good idea although some local groups here have had
trouble selling coupon books.
