When the Boss Is Away...
How Sound Crafters' Paul Papadeas is reshaping IASCA to empower his fellow dealers
By David Dritsas
A few years ago, staff members of Sound Crafters in Daytona Beach, Florida, played a prank on their boss, Owner Paul Papadeas. One day, a customer came in with a 15-year-old receipt for a purchase he made at the store. Amazed by this, and looking for a bit of fun, they devised a story for Papadeas, telling him that the customer was trying to make a return from that very purchase. The joke was well-received, and Papadeas kept a copy of the receipt. But later, while examining this little piece of nostalgia, he saw something that wasn't so funny.
