Slide show added showing the work room where all the repairs are made.
We opened on Tuesday March 6th and celebrated a Grand Opening on
Saturday March 10th with pizza supplied by Fireside Pizza.
Opening week went far beyond any of our expectations. Mom was busy all week in the front and Dad was back on the machines (temporarily pulled from retirement).
The support we received from Ruth Piano Movers, Channel 11, Channel 5, The Star Tribune, Public Radio, our loyal customers and the community has made this move very smooth and successful.
It is difficult to fully express our gratitude for all the help so freely given to us.
We are looking forward to providing our best service and answering any of your questions.
