If you’re like us and have been literally biting your fingernails to the bone waiting for an update on the new Lynnfield Polkadog Bakery store, bite those nails no longer!
It’s official. We’re in and work is underway!
Here are some photos of the progress over the last couple weeks.
Brian and Mike have the paint scheme down and pretty soon the floors will be done and the lights will be hanging and the shelves will start filling up with the best dog and cat stuff on the planet.
And that’s when the fun really starts.
We were on site the other day looking over the new freezer and making some final design decisions. Then, it was off to Starbucks for a bit of refreshment and a stroll around Market Street Lynnfield. What an awesome project: already buzzing like a Maine honeybee hive in August and only about 30% or so of the stores are open.
We walked by an open J. Jill (one of our neighbors) an open Yankee Candle (also a neighbor), an almost finished Gymboree (don’t tell my daughter), and a couple others with doors wide open welcoming the groups of people walking by.
Honestly, now that we’re in and getting our hands dirty, we couldn’t be more excited to take this plunge. Nervous, of course. But happy and confident and ready to turn it up.
Stay tuned for more updates. We’ll post pictures here, on Pinterest, and on our Facebook page as the opening date draws near. Maybe we’ll even send a Tweet or two. Also keep your eyes peeled for giveaways and coupons to help us welcome the newest member of the Polkadog family.
Thanks to all who have sent well wishes and good vibes. We appreciate it more than you know and can’t wait to open our doors to you in our new home.
The polka train rolls on.
