Pardon our Construction
Those of you who have already begun your Spring maintenance have probably notice the ongoing construction inside the Marine Store/Ditty Bag. The store is being revamped and we are installing a brand new, custom built point-of-sale workstation area. It will soon begin to look familiar, as we have designed it to look like the transom and hull of a vessel. This new workstation has been designed to house all store personnel in a central location. Once up and running, Diana Williams, our Parts Clerk, as well as, our store Sales Associates, Bob Celuska and Beverly Jones, will all work in this new area. The creation of this new central workstation will allow us to bring some popular stock items from the second floor downstairs to make them more accessible. This project should be completed by mid-April.
You will also notice some construction happening inside the Reception Center. The second floor of the Reception Center is being completely remodeled to become a premier indoor customer lounge area. While Hal Hopkins, our Dockmaster's office/desk will remain in this area, the rest of the space will be available for customers to sit and/or eat at the new bar area, read the paper, or watch the weather or a football game in the comfortable sitting area, both with flat-screen TVs. Stop by the office to see the layout of this new area, which we expect to be complete by late April.
Around the corner from the new lounge area, Passages Bar & Grill is undergoing some construction as well. We are relocating Passages' kitchen area to the back of the building on a newly built deck in order to open up the existing kitchen area for some much needed, prime waterfront seating/dining area. This project will be completed in time for Passages' opening on Memorial Day weekend.
