No there is only 1 user that match the sotre_by. If the query is not written
correctly do you mind trying to show me how to correctly right it?

When I dump the query and run it in console I get the results I want. Not
sure what I am doing wrong.

stores.store_date, stores.store_tptest, stores.store_by, user

LEFT JOIN users ON stores.store_by = users.use
r_id WHERE stores.store_subject = 'Bella Roe 4980 Roe Blvd' ORDER BY
stores.store_date DESC ;
