    Ok, was thinking of October 19th. It's a Saturday after Columbus Day weekend.

    51 Winthrop street 02769

    Truthfully I have too much work to do to pull it off any earlier. Will have burning displays of M55 freestanding and insert, A red Empress, Mini-A, and the Meridian. There will be a showroom model Windhager Boiler System with bulk feed conveyance system.

    Raffles: 1 WiFi tstat with controller box, a bunch of free springtime cleanings, a seasons worth of woodpellets (3 tons), and quite possibly even a stove...working on that.

    There will be beer if you bring it. I will have a pellet grill to cook on so bring your meat and veggies and your coolers. Got a really nice fenced lawn out back but sorry, no dogs please a daycare uses the area for a playground...there will be kids around and we got a pretty busy road so no craziness till it's dark.

    Let me know if you folks need anything else.

    You know I'll be there!
    What's the proposed time? Who's cutting the ribbon?

    Hello
    Will Don2222 be there? I hope the wifi t-stat is an Ecobee, 'cause you can monitor the flood in your basement.

    Scott if you need ant help during the week evenings, I'm happy to oblige

    Wow, it's costly to go into biz these days....

    When we started, we hauled a couple stoves into our dining room and placed an ad in the local pennysaver. Nothing hooked up, of course! The next year my dad let us use the downstairs of a carriage house that was part of a rental property on a side street in our little town.....
    Here is that little carriage house after we bought it, added to it, etc.

    Good Luck my man. Main thing is to stay healthy....

    I hear ya. It's the 14 MPG of my truck and no babysitter that's the issue. Excuses :(

    Believe me, I'd love to bring some steaks, STS with you guys and check out all the fun toys.

    smwilliamson sounds like he's doing it right, that's for sure. Looking forward to the pix! ==c

    :eek:Not to sink the boat ...don't expect 60 stoves in a 4000 SQFT showroom. I will have about 6 stoves in my 400 sqft show room

    Congratulations smwilliamson!

    You should consider someday opening a store in western ma. We don't have anything here and there seems to be a need.

    Yeah, but up until relatively recently, massage parlors in RI legally still catered to the sailors, if you get my drift....
    (don't want to get too far off topic - was just commenting on the next to massage place!)

    You earn officially Big Pig status if you come to the Bay for a pellet shop opening.

    Its hard to make it to Kinsman Stives and its only 1.75 hrs away...

    I am not dismissing the idea. I indeed would love to come 11 hrs and win 3 tons of pellets that I wwould have to strap to the hood of my Focus ;lol
