Tomorrow is the Big Day!

Hello all, Jennifer here.

Tomorrow is the big day for my husband Alex. His dream of opening a storefront has finally come true. After three and a half years of working towards this goal, we are so incredibly excited that all of Alex's hard work has paid off.

So tomorrow Alex is meeting with Jerry and Diane, the current owners of the shop. I am leaving work early to meet Alex and officially begin our first day as owners of the shop. Jerry and Diane are going to be helping Alex and I understand the day to day workings of the store.

And for a little background on what is going on...the shop is currently called "All Pure Water Store" and specializes in purified water and water supplies, like crocks, bottles, etc. Our plan is to continue on with the water sales, but add more to it. Almost immediately, we will be adding salt water to our supply, to be used in saltwater aquariums.

Over time, we will be adding livestock as well as fish supplies (food, tanks, gravel, etc.). Our goal is to have a "fish room" that will be housed at the back of the store, away from sunlight for the safety and health of the fish.

Alex will continue to do tank services as well. I will be working at the store on the weekends and sometimes during the week so that Alex can take care of his tank services.

I hope to be posting some pictures of the store very soon. I also wanted to say a quick thank you to all our friends and family that have been so supportive over the last few months as we try to get everything in order for the store. We could not have even dreamed of this venture without you all.

The journey of owning a small business is just beginning for Alex and I, and I can't wait to see what lies ahead!
