Remodeling is still in progress.
On April 12, 2007 we set up shop. It’s a little over three years later and we have moved things around more than once per year. We used to have our office in what was (until last week) the used record room. The office moved to the back storage area then. Now, the office has moved to our basement. The back room is now the used record room. The old used record room now has sub-categories of records. New and used CDs have new shelving. Books and magazines are on end-cap displays. The listening station is in the corner under the television. 7″s/45s are under the new records in the main room. There’s more to explain. It all gets real muddled if you’re trying to grasp it while reading, however.
Let me explain in pictures, both moving and static!
Before getting going with anything major in the store we had to move our big megaton 1970s (former Pratt & Whitney) steel desk downstairs. The easiest way to move that beast is to take it apart and reassemble it in the new location. Oh wait, if you’re going down stairs the easiest way is to just take off the legs and shove it onto a pile of broken down cardboard. Yea!
Days two and three saw us gathering some help from our friends. We took down all the old shelving (downstairs to be used for back-stock). So, thanks to my folks, my brother Joe, and our friends Mike, Brian, Ryan, Rob and Melissa. While I’m thanking people – thanks to ourselves: Rick, Josh, Sean and Bean (the dog).
Days six and seven saw lots of arranging. No big movements were left at this point.
DAY EIGHT (If you’re seeing this right away – sorry, for some reason this video is taking forever to process):
Come on by and see it for yourself. Let us know what you think in person.
