You will find him all over the store, helping anyone who needs help. Does everything his Mom, Kari Potts, asks him to do (well maybe some of the things) loves to tease everyone and “just messing with you” type of young man. You need help, just yell for William and he’ll be right there to give you a hand taking your purchases to your car – whatever! He is a very important part of our “Champions” – the young men and women who grace our store and our lives from the Down syndrome Community. He has my heart (can you tell?)
