This Tuesday marks 6 weeks since we "soft launched" the store. Tuesday is our Grand Opening and in honour of that milestone I thought I'd share this little video I put together.
Opening a retail store can be a frightening venture. I definitely had a couple of classic panic attacks during the planning phase.
Once we got the keys to the store, it took a lot of hard work and contribution from many people over February and March including my husband, kids and so many fantastic people I've met in the community. When you see that brown paper go up on a window, it means that someone is spending a lot of hours to make their dream come true.
Every morning when i walked in to start working on the store, I tried to remember to take a photo from the front doorway. Here's the transformation of our little store from empty space to the first day we opened the doors to customers.
