Well we have come to an agreement to lease another building, this will be a multi year lease with a graduating payment, we start out low and then build up the monthly payments until we reach the agreed upon monthly cost. The plan is to move the first week of November, and then be open for business on the 10th, this will give me several weeks of Christmas sales in a highly visible location.

This is an old Sinclair station built in 1935, it has a single bay, an office, a double bay and an attached storage building. All total it is about 1,600 square feet and is on the most visible corner in town, everyone that comes into town from the south and west has to go right past the new shop, and it is on the corner of a forced turn so you see the building for 1 ½ blocks.

I have plans to take the building back to the looks of a 1940’s Sinclair station next year. With some of my own customizations thrown in.

Looks like it has good potential. Hopefully no buried tanks.

This looks like a perfect combination of a great building and a great location, and with the quality of your work Otto it should be hugely successful too.
