Suggestion box?

Wouldn’t it be neat to have a legitimate suggestion box on Mysource that allowed us to submit requests on what could help our store. We work it daily, why not listen to us, DMs dont!!

How many times a day do you get "Is this store closing?" "Are you losing your job?" So annoying! I wish someone would just publish to the media which stores are actually closing !
