An opportunity in our shopping complex has arisen. We are going to expand our store by about 40% more space. I guess that's the good news. What's the bad, you ask? Moving a long time, well established store.

Fantastic! A lot of work, I'm sure. But upgrading to more space must certainly be worth it. Looks like the wall shelving is already in place and looks great!

Good luck with everything!

 

I helped my brother move one store and open up another one.

 

I know it's A LOT of hard work and stress.

Good luck Rick. I know the pressure of the con season coupled with setting up the new location will be no easy task. :wishluck:
