Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached a new year once again. This one’s entitled 2015 and just like all the rest, it will start with aspirations. For some of us, there will be new challenges, such as running your first 5K, half, or full marathon. But for the vast majority, I’ll bet it’ll be more like “This year I really am going to lose that weight!” Or quit smoking, or get organized. Irrespective of which category your resolution falls in, I want you to know that I am cheering for you. Good luck!
Here at The Engineer Guy, we’ve begun 2015 in a new space. Many of you got to watch this transition. Over the course of the month of December, we packed up everything and literally wheeled it down the parking lot to the suite on the south end of the same building. Sounds easy? It wasn’t. I think the mindset was well-intentioned. After all, it was simply down the parking lot. We didn’t really need to organize, did we? Nah.
Please. Don’t ever not organize. Bad idea.
Moral of story: I am NEVER EVER moving this business again.
Now for the good stuff. We did it! No, it’s still not organized as we want it to be, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel and things are starting to make sense. That having been said, let me cover a few of what I know will be questions you want answers to:
Where is it?
Our new space is literally the south end of the same building we were in before. It’s Suite 1011 instead of 1003. And yes. The sign is out.
How much bigger is it?
The old space was about five thousand square feet, with about a thousand of that dedicated to the retail store. Total size for the new operation is 14,400 square feet, and the retail area makes up about three thousand square feet. Our workshop space in the old shop was around four hundred square feet. We have two spaces now, the smallest about six hundred and the big one at about twelve hundred.
Are you going to add more products?
Yes. We have plans to increase the range for both the molding and casting side, and for the makeup side.
Are you going to have more classes?
With all this space available to us, yes indeed! Not only will we add our own classes, but we will also make the rooms available to those of you who need to host your own meetings. Just don’t blow anything up.
We’re expecting a good year and many more to come, thanks to you folks. Please let us know what you think, and how we can be of greater assistance to you going forward. That’s what this business is all about.
Rock on, people. It’s all good!
