Looks good - congrats!
Looks nice! Congratulations! I'm sure we all wouldn't mind some pictures of the space once you have moved everything in. When is the grand opening?!?! Will there be beer?
Grand opening will be in Sept sometime. Yes, there will be beer. Brewing up an Anchor Steam so we'll have two cases of that and some vittles from the pellet grill. Most likely will be raffling off some stoves and pellets...gotta work out the details on that. Fer now, just ripped out the rug and going to the store to purchase some paint...
knock em dead, Scott! My advice: good, honest employees, take care of em, and pay em well!
It sure looks like a nice place to attract business and work out of . I wish you much success.
Congrats! Keep us posted.
Only 2 cases of beer?????
I guess I won't be going....
Any woodstoves in yer shop? OH, wait, there's gonna be beer......I'm down with that!
What are the store hours?
Weekends are busy.
One thing you've done right... See yourself as a service oriented company first. That's a long term strategy that works well. Some of the best dealers I've seen are those who runs their service dept. as a profit centre (or THE profit centre) while the store is gravy and feeds the service dept.
One thing that has always puzzled me is when dealers say " I refuse to service what I dont sell". While that may work if you dont have the time & resources to service other brands, it seems to me a short-sighted strategy. Like cutting your nose to spite your face.
More service means more revenues & potential appliances & other hard goods sales.
Keep up the good work and update us with pics.
If we are all invited we could all bring a case of our best local beer.
Dibs on smokes beer.
Are you going to setup a booth for a little abrasion blasting with the aluminum-oxide grits and a Paint booth with an Air Sprayer for fixin yer stoves to look showroom new?
Hell no. Trying to make money here. I'll leave that stuff for you. Do you have any idea what a spray booth costs? I do.
Going to have wood stove too.
I will be open when my competition is closed and then some...I don't know man. Right now I'm just trying to sort through it all. Track lighting started going up today and the dumpster arrived. That was day two...plus two service calls and some permit fetchin
Good luck with the tne new store, looks like it will be a real winner
Nice. Good luck !
Where is the Service Manager's Office? Will it be a big corner office with windows on both sides?
Also is there a Conference Room with large Flat screen for Remote Sites? Great for directing service calls. Techs equipped with an Iphone 5 can easily show the play by play in HD! You can also have a web cam in the room to show your face when you are happy with a job well done!
Nice set up, Always nice to have a place to call home! As to your hours, competetor have an option to adjust their hours when then see the market need/competition. Same with prices etc. Quality and availabilty will be your hallmark. You know your stuff and have gone into this slow and steady so you should well. Wish you many years of success.
Way over the top Don..... Way over. You wanna make money. Not spend it all.
Scott- Congrats man. I have been here and watched you grow from a one man operation to now owning a shop and being a dealer/service center. I must say, you have come a long way and your hard work has paid off. Keep it up!!
List the grand opening date. I have a Buddy that lives kinda up that way and I have been wanting to go fishing with him for awhile. With about 13 days of vaca left, I need to plan something.
Congrats on the new digs, Scott. Please post more pics when you get "settled in".
