We hit on a lot of our spending priorities this year. Going forward, obviously a lot of security stuff. Every year, it’s going to be security. It just keeps changing. So the stuff we bought a year ago is changing. So security is probably our No. 1 priority.

We’re refreshing our all our wireless next year. The system we have now is getting pretty old, so it’s just time. It was supposed to be replaced before COVID. Our business was shut down for two months because of COVID. We were basically out of business for two months. So everything got reprioritized because of that.

Everything got backtracked, so we’re piecing the most important things first. Each piece gets its turn. There’s a wireless refresh. We have a lot of locations.
