2008

NOVEMBER 2008

We're operating from where our storeroom has been for the past few years, and building continues apace. Still had a busy October, despite the chaos. Will try to add some building progress photos now.

 

16/9/2008. The building begins.

SEPTEMBER 2008 - THE BUILDING BEGINS - PICTURES SOON.

September 9th - we received email notification that the construction certificate has been issued by the Eurobodalla Shire Council. That means construction work might start within the week.

September 15th - block surveyed.

September 16th - Safety fence erected, power lines protected.

September 17th - Excavator in, side path removed, in preparation for sub-floor work.

Many '09 Giant bikes in stock, with more arriving.

We're trying to run our stock holding down a bit as we'll soon be moving, temporarily, into our (expanded) storeroom when the building gets serious.

JULY 2008

Mark and Dana are back from a holiday in NZ with daugter and friend. Both limping due to their attempts at skiing. Ah well, should stick to cycling and walking.

Details being worked out for the extension - hoping to make a start around the end of August, beginning of September. Should be finished by Summer.

JUNE 2008

WE HAVE IT - APPROVAL OF OUR DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION TO EXTEND THE SHOP! WHEW!

Giant '09 bikes arriving.

MAY 2008

Graham's back from holiday, and Rodney's about to set off. So apart from some changes and additions done early in the month, the website will probably remain pretty well unchanged for May. And, we're hoping the extension plans will get through council this month... It's looking like the extension should happen this winter/spring. So we're starting to think about some more specials and clearance lines to make the exercise a little easier.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY/MARCH/APRIL 2008

Yep, kind of busy. We've added Five Ten shoes to our line-up. The long process of getting council approval for our extensions drawn inexorably towards its conclusion... We've bought our goods hoist in anticipation...
