A couple of days ago, we found out that the tenant now wants to stay till July 15, causing us to look at an opening date of August 1 again...until the leasing agent offered free rent for our trouble if we wanted to set up shop temporarily in a vacant space two doors down.
The popularity of pop-up shops made that sound like a pretty good deal, so we're planning to open our doors late next week. We'll stay at our temporary location longer than most pop-up shops do, but we're going to have fun with the concept, and we think our customers will too.
My daughter and SIL are currently on a buying trip, but as soon as they get home Saturday, we're all shifting into high gear for this impromptu move. I'll keep you posted on our progress.
