Things have been really busy at Fox’s. Finally, we’ve started painting the back office so that we can set it up into a larger private space for order-taking, filing, etc. Which means, that our showroom is expanding. We have some great cupolas just waiting to be put out on display, as well as some very, very elegant-looking vinyl mailbox posts. We’ve been selling those, even though we hardly have any out to show. I need to remember to keep buy on of those for myself.
We will also be adding some lovely copper weathervanes for sale in our display area, as soon as we can make the room for them. Since we are mainly a manufacturer for wholesale vendors, our retail display has always taken second place. But, we’ve got plans to not only spruce it up a bit, but expand it as well, since we are always adding new inventory. We’d love to keep more in stock to better serve our customers, both wholesale and retail.
Lately, we’ve been keeping very busy building large 2-car garages and storage facilities for special orders. They just keep getting bigger and bigger! You know what they say, the only difference between men and boys are the prices of their toys. It seems guys are not only spending their cash on autos and other big pieces of machinery, but are also very concerned about storage for their large toys. I’m happy to report that we can accommodate these needs, and meet each and every special request.
We have another build-on-site to do tomorrow, so its an early day for everyone at the shop. The guys in the plant have been busy keeping orders up to date as everyone gets ready for a holiday weekend. We’ve been selling gazebos like hotcakes in lancaster pa this year, with everyone wanting their order before the holiday rolls around. Seems like there will be lots of backyard picnics this year when the fireworks start to go off. Not surprising, with the cost of gas lately, it seems that more and more people are investing in their homes and their backyards. Why vacation when you can stay at home and have your own oasis? This includes the recent requests we’ve had for poolhouses. It seems everyone is putting in a pool this year, and want somewhere cozy and comfortable to stay out of the sun.
Remember, if you have a special request for a shed, poolhouse, garage or gazebo, stop by and see us at our Fox Country Shed facility at 537 E 28th Division Highway. We are just about a mile East from the Route 501 and Route 322 intersection in Brickerville and the Lititz area. We’d love to see you!
