Setting up downstairs and clearing the floor

We have to get everything cleared out of the way on half the floor so that flooring installation can commence tomorrow.

Over 6,000 pounds of oak flooring waiting to be installed, starting TOMORROW!

A lot of things can be shuffled off to the other side of the store, but we decided this was as good a time as any to start setting up the downstairs space.

First, we need some storage. These shelves give us a starting point, but there's lots of room for boxes down here, too. The freezer is for food inventory.

Next up: a break area for the employees with a mini-fridge and microwave. We want happy employees!

And an office area finishes off the downstairs. That's Gwen's desk on the left, Gary's on the right. Only about half of the office stuff has actually been moved in.

Now that we have a whole bunch of stuff hauled off the sales floor, we can move all of the rest of it off to one side and let the flooring guys get started tomorrow morning. Here’s the last picture before turning off the lights and going home:

Look at all that empty space!
