Above is the view looking down the staircase from the 2nd floor to the ground floor in our new Cedar Rapids store. The gang at Superior Welding in Iowa City built that staircase in 2 giant sections and it really ties the room together.
At over 4,500 square feet on 2 levels, this will be a bad-ass space. Lots of light, overlooking the lawn in front of NewBo City Market.
There is about a week or so of work on the space (painting, trim, railings), then we'll start moving in displays and product. Opening will be somewhere around April 8th-12th.
The 2nd floor is almost finished, with just some trim remaining around the walls, then railing around the staircase opening.
