We got keys!

We got keys!

So this weekend we can finally confirm that the deal is done and we now have a permanent St Albans shop.

You may or may not know but we’ve been searching for somewhere to call our own for a very long time, maybe 18 months now. I have spent many a morning cycling local streets looking at prospective shops. Finally last December (2016) I was walking into town when I noticed a small sign in a little shop in Catherine Street. Within days I’d agreed with the Landlord that we’d like to take it. What I have now learnt is that solicitors do take a very loooonnnng time! There is still a little way to go before we open our doors to you lovely people but its real progress and we are very excited.

I will be writing a little bit to this blog over the next few weeks as the preparations continue for the big day. Next step is a tiny bit of work to the backrooms, heating, lighting and bathroom. I’ll aim to take some pics tomorrow of the shop as it now stands.

Hope you are somewhere near as excited as we are!

    Congratulations. I’ll keep a look out for it next time I’m driving down Catherine Street.

    Ah, and while I think of it… you might not know that key-cutters can cut keys from photos. I had it done myself when I ordered a replacement key over the internet. Depending on your levels of paranoia, you might like to obscure the details of the key.
