Your “Off Season” is our “On Season”
By Linda Quinn
Southwest Florida has long been a vacation retreat for our northern neighbors. Around the middle of October, the roads begin to fill up with out of state license plates. “Season” has officially started. While the rest of the country is preparing to settle down for their long winter’s nap so to speak, we are ramping up into high gear for the return of our seasonal clientele.
After a five or six month hiatus, we are suddenly deluged by requests to freshen, brighten and spruce up our snowbirds’ homes. Naturally, they all hope to witness the transformations while they are in town. Thanksgiving and Christmas are particularly highly desired times of the year for furniture installations. Who wouldn’t relish the idea of spending the holidays with family in your newly remodeled home in paradise?
Balancing the surge in business between October and April can be challenging but has become an expected way of life in Southwest Florida. With a little tenacity, a lot of hard work and a sense of humor, we’ve managed to get through it season after season for the past 25 years.
See you in the Fall!
