There were even places that had turnkey facilities for factories or shipping warehouses
The 2008 recession easily ravaged our area. Businesses at every level were hit in 1 way or another. What used to be a thriving downtown hub in our small neighborhood swiftly turned into a ghost neighborhood of boarded up windows and sidewalks with knee high shrubbery and weeds. When I was in grade school, it was a beautiful section with dealers of every kind. All of us had a pharmacy that went back decades and more than two different generations in the same family. There was a hardware store downtown that was also passed down from 1 generation to the next. Even if their prices were a tiny bit higher than what you’d find in 1 of the big hardware store chains, I still happily shopped there until the easily end. I was incredibly lucky to avoid losing our job or our lake house when the recession ravaged the country and the world at large. There was an opening where I could possibly beginning our own corporation. I had shoppers from our job that were willing to stick with myself and others if I went out of our own. The big push came when I looked for commercial space to rent for a small office. I just wanted a place for myself and a receptionist, so I didn’t need anything expensive, large, or expensive. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise, however I soon found that there were commercial and industrial spaces available for rent at low prices all throughout our city. There were even places that had turnkey facilities for factories or shipping warehouses. I didn’t need to outfit the building in anyway, I just needed typical heating and cooling appreciate you’d expect in any small office. After securing a lease for a good price, I started our business with haste.
