I hated to close my business down, even temporarily. But the building that I was operating out of needed major renovations. I considered just moving the business, but that would have been even more expensive, so I made the choice to shut down, do the renovations, and have a grand reopening. My major worry was where I was going to store my stock and equipment in the meantime.
My contractor was actually the one that pointed me to a great commercial storage company. They helped me move my things into the storage unit, gave me great insurance just in case, and made sure my store’s important equipment and products were protected until I could reopen. Thanks to them, the renovations went smoothly, and I am now setting my store back up and planning for my grand reopening.
