Remember when I told you about our new warehouse last year? Here’s an update: It’s still in progress. Building the warehouse was the quickest part; now we have to get sprinklers for ALL of Bramble Berry’s original 13,000 square foot warehouse and we have many other equally important projects that need completed before we can move in. We’re bursting at the seams so it’s a little maddening to gaze into that big empty building (I know it doesn’t look like it, but that’s 2700 square feet of empty space with huge ceilings to allow for full pallet racking). But we will be moved in there soon (ish?).
Meanwhile, inside we are expanding into the offices in the front part of the building (that we used to rent out to another business). When I originally bought this building, I knew I wanted room for Bramble Berry to expand…and (thanks to you guys!) expanding we are!
Upstairs, we’re pulling down the ceiling and insulation so that the sprinklers can be installed. And look what we found? Miles and miles and miles of old telephone and data cables (anyone looking for extras?). It looks like a disaster right now but when it’s finished, we’ll be equipped to serve our customers better – which is the silver lining and the light at the end of the tunnel for me. Running this project and keeping boxes shipping, has been no easy feat (but rest assured, we like a challenge – bring on the orders!).
