Good Morning everyone! I thought today, I'd take a step back and talk a little about the construction to take place at The Studio, to get it ready for opening! I hope by giving you some of this information, you'll have a better idea of why it's taking a while to get the store opened!
It was by sheer luck and blessings that I found the space at The Pinetree Plaza, which happens to be 3.5 miles from my house! But that's not the best part. The Pinetree Plaza is situated at one of the busiest intersections in Trumbull County and is so centrally located between all the major highways and routes, that it truly is the PERFECT spot for The Studio. And, the paving of all the roads in every direction from the plaza has just been completed, so it's smooth sailing right into the parking lot!
The Studio is located two doors down from Cindy's Health & Vitality Center, and the other end of the plaza is East of Chicago Pizza and Arthur Treachers. McDonalds is right across the street and so is Walgreens! Oh yes, and BP Gas station! Everything you need is within walking distance of the store which I'm sure will make your lengthy visits at The Studio much more convenient and enjoyable!
So, back to the store. It will be a little over 4,600 square feet of pure Scrapbooking Bliss! It will be an open floor plan with a designated cropping & training area at the very back of the store. There are many walls that needs to come down (the spaced was previously used as a Policy Academy), a new HVAC system that will be installed in addition to two new handicap accessible bathrooms and a new drop ceiling!
The decor of the store is expected to be a little bit of contemporary/retail and little bit Boutique! Okay, maybe more Boutique than contemporary! LOL! So as you can see, there is much work to be done! But once it's done, it will be utterly fantastic!
That's all for today! Please remember that if you have any questions or blog suggestions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Have a great Monday everyone!
