I was surprised to see that the empty building across the street actually had some life in it.
That building had been abandoned for at least 6 or so years.
A lot of the former businesses did not do well in that area, and would have to shut down. The owner of the property had trouble renting the building out, and I guess he just gave up and abandoned it. But seemingly overnight, the new owners had the building cleaned out and looking nice. Although they hadn’t put up their sign yet, I could already tell what kind of business it was. It is a heating and A/C business. I could tell by the numerous HVAC vans and A/C trucks parked close by. This was fantastic, we actually really needed a heating and air conditioning company in this town. We only had one A/C dealer originally, and since they were the only one, they were charging an arm and a leg just for their HVAC services. This new cooling company will be fresh and hopefully offer cheaper prices. The best part is that they are within walking distance to me. So if I ever need heating and A/C repair, or HVAC maintenance, or really any kind of HVAC service, the cooling tech can be here in minutes! It is fantastic that there is a new heating business, and I have no doubt they will thrive here since we are lacking in HVAC businesses. Too bad I don’t need any A/C services any time soon, because I would like to try them!
