moving update

I'm down to about 4 hours of sleep a night. There's just so much to think about, decisions to be made and coordination of everything involved with moving the store from here to there. The countdown has definitely begun...

The contractor's already at work and making good progress: the new demising wall is up, electrical is roughed in, trim is almost all up, work has begun on the display window, the new doors and black ceiling tiles have been ordered. Carpeting estimates are coming in, the new alarm system has been ordered and the moving guys have been lined up. Little snafus like the wrong mirror being delivered and an ugly rug having to be returned are just blips on the radar. Even my appearance before the City Planning Commission for the new sign's approval went smoothly last night.

It's all good and the talk on the street about our impending move is good, too. And we just learned yesterday that a great framing shop/art gallery is also moving down the street to a more visible location. Seems we've started a moving "movement." Come April, Main Street is going to look a little a good way!
