This is my present place of employment, Living Homes in our Dolphin Square location, near the seafront with poor local parking, no on site customer parking and poor access for deliveries and collections. Passing trade was generally retired locals from along the seafront, where many of the retirement complexes are based, and during the summer season, visiting tourists. Total floor space including offices was approx 9000 sq ft plus 2500 sq ft in the nearby but separate electrical goods department.
Then compare this to the new store we are opening this Saturday (05/05/12)
Floorspace of approximately 20000 sq ft,including electrical goods,customer toilets and lift to second floor,warehouse and offices. We’ll even have our own customer car park.
You’ll understand why I’m exhausted from the effort but also wildly excited about the new opening!
