CHECK OUT THE NEW AND IMPROVED CHIMP'S COMIX
On October 9, Chimp's started what would become an intire weekend of work. We had acquired the store location next to us and had to knock down a wall and expand. Chimp's was running out of room fast and we felt it was time to get some more room.
We had to empty out the store so that the next day we could knock down the wall and recarpet the whole space. On October 10, Nick met the landlord and construction crew at about 7:00 a.m. The wall was quickly knocked down and clean up had to happen next.
We quickly hurried to compact the store against the other wall so that the carpet could be finished. The carpet was the slowest moving process and ended a little after 5:00 p.m. We put a couple of items in place for the night and started painting the walls blue and gray (Just like Batman). This night did not end until midnight.
Saturday started early as well. We all started to roll in at about 9:00 a.m. This was going to be the biggest day of them all. We had this idea to wallpaper one entire wall with old comic books. This process took 3 people at a total of about 35 hours to accomplish.
Saturday was crazy however. Everything had to come together as quickly as possible. We did a restock on the comic books, put up shelves, repaint, set up the tournament area, and much more. That night ended at about 1:00 a.m.
We returned the next morning at 10:00 a.m. This day was to finish painting, coat the comic wall, build more shelves, and generally set up the store for business. Things were hectic but by the end of the night, the store was near complete. The night ended at midnight.
It was now Monday, and we arrived at noon. We had about 4 hours to restock everything and be ready to open for business in a new store at 4:00 p.m. We rushed around but finished restocking with minutes to spare. It was a long and hard task, but it was accomplished. The customers reactions were great. Everyone seemed to love the new store and was amazed that this could happen in 4 days. We would love to hear what you think of the new store. Just stop in and tell us.
