New Carpet

After about 7 years, we are finally putting new carpet in the store and the process illustrates two things:

1. advance planning makes things easier. We planned ahead of time when we were going to make the move, figures where to put shelves and merchandise in order let the carpet layers do their job with a minimum of difficulty while still letting customers and staff move around the store.

2. You can't anticipate everything. We thought we had enough people scheduled to make the moving easy. Unfortunately, 3 of them, for one reason or another could not show up the second night. Happily, it was the easiest of the three nights and we got everything moved with only 4 people, finishing up half an hour early.
