After 25 Years in our home town of Danville, it was time for a change.
The world was a different place when I opened my first store 25 years ago in my home town of Danville. The internet barely existed and my customers would visit the showroom where I displayed all sorts of NuTone products. I was in that location for 21 years.
My first move was really just up the street and around the corner from my first store. I felt that it was time to move to a location with better visibility and an updated design and look. My second store was a real showplace and the new design was very well received by my customers. Unfortunately the economy did appreciate my new store as much as everyone else did, and during our great recession it became obvious that it was time to make another change.
We moved upstairs and weathered out the next 3 years in a very nice, but somewhat small office. . .
The decision to leave my home town of Danville was not necessarily easy, but it was the right choice. In our new city of San Ramon (1.5 miles South of Danville) we were able to double the size of our offices at almost the same cost.
With the increased space, we will be able to increase the number of NuTone Intercoms we repair each year beyond the 400 or so we have completed in past years.
Everyone here has worked really hard to get the office up and running in just a weeks time, and finally the problem with getting our telephones transferred was sorted out yesterday, making us fully functioning again.
Here's a short walk through Video of our new offices. We will be "fixing them up" over the next few months, to make them feel more like home.
