Diane Kopfensteiner, G and G Model Shop Inc., Houston, Texas, said:
Just recently. We visited my son in Singapore. Is it needed to avoid burnout? I don't think so, but everyone is different.

Jerry Anderson, Jass Collectibles, Calgary, Alta., said:

I take one every Sunday whether I need it or not. If that doesn't work, I move things around. Then it looks like I've got a new store.

Randy Frost, Perry's Resin, Whitby, Ont., responded:
Last August. I had no idea that much rain could come down in a week.

Gerry Satterwhite, Greenville Hobby Depot, Greenville, Texas, replied:
I can't remember. My business isn't too hard on me.

Scott Thorne, Castle Perilous Games, Carbondale, Ill., had this to say:
Late June for three days. No, I don't feel it's necessary to avoid burnout. The day I feel burnout from working at the store is the day I sell the place.

Chris Merseal, CRM Hobbies, St. Louis, Mo., said:
I'm on vacation now, but I'm still working.

Tim Foster, HobbyTown USA, College Station, Texas, responded:
It's been a few years since we took more than a day or two here and there. Yes, I do feel it's necessary to avoid burnout.
