In a small business the boundaries between personal and business get fuzzy

Leiserís Bethlehem (not related to our business)

April 1 2018 Leiserís Bethlehem was evicted and moved from there longtime Bethlehem location. October 1 2019 Leiserís Bethlehem closed permanently.

Retirement update 2020

Operating a small business has changed since I started working in my fatherís store in the early 1960s.† The increasing costís and regulations placed on the small independent businesses, and the inability to hire young adults with usable skills and work ethics have pushed me to my limits. At 64 and after two hip replacements, my aging body can no longer handle the physical and mental aspects of the 60+ hour weeks.††

I donít intend to close the business

but do plan to reduce business activities as I cut my hours.

Store hours will not be changed during 2020

 

This is a complicated business with complicated equipment. My experience has allowed us to coach many Do-It-Yourselfers into completing projects that were beyond there skill levels.† However, when an employee canít answer a question, I get the blame. Customers need to understand while my employees have far more experience than the rental person at Home Depot, five decades of experience canít be learned overnight. I canít continue the business if I am expected to work every day. This transition can be made smoother if our customers pre-plan projects and reserve rental equipment in advance.

New rental equipment for 2020. We will continue to update and add new rental equipment when it makes sense. We replaced our aging 40í towable lift last fall. We are replacing all of our older white folding chairs. We will be replacing our older brown chairs this fall. We added more children's chairs and tables. Last summer we added a new dog fence installer and slit seeder.†

Retiring?† Is anything for sale?†† Yes everything is for sale.

Business I am not actively marketing the business as a whole because of its complexity.† If you are interested lets talk.

Property I have considered some offers in the past. If the property would be sold we would relocate a smaller version of the business nearby.

Used Equipment Yes, we are selling off surplus items. In the past we have been very successful selling on

E-bay and Craigs list. You can pick up a used equipment list at the store.

 

The New Normal

A few years ago I hired several young men with young families they all had two things in common, they all lived with, and were supported by parents, and all were unreliable and lazy.† Any parent that houses, feeds and supplies these basement dwellers with beer money are doing no favors for their children grandchildren or our society.

A customer notices our help wanted sign and they know of a young person out of work. I give that customer an application to pass on but knowing most will not be returned. There is a generation of 18 to 40-year-oldís that have no interest in working or learning the skills needed for hands on technical jobs.† Many of our young new hires are unable to handle the rigors of a 40-hour week.† One full time hire barely averaged 12 hours a week.

Lawn Equipment Service

The inability to hire reliable, inspired, and trainable young people is affecting our ability to provide the level of customer service we are known for. Customers have demanded that we fill the vacuum left by the closing of several local independent Lawn Equipment Dealers.

 

We asked our customers for understanding during the busy spring rush. While most customers understood, some have made demands and comments that were downright ugly. For me 2019 has been just one more lawn season with 70 hour weeks just trying to keep up, and one more reason I need to retire. I no longer have the stamina to function late into a 12 hour day.

 

For 2020 we are making changes to our Lawn Equipment Service Policies. These changes can be† found on our† Lawn Equipment Service page††††††††††

Social Media Feedback

We donít solicit 5 star ratings, We donít ask friends, employees, or ratings companies to build us 5 star ratings.† With that said please be honest and if you have a complaint contact us directly.† As a businessman I read and follow feedback writers.† It seems some writers look for frivolous reasons for leaving negative feedback.† I understand feedback and legitimate feedback helps us see our strengths and our weakness.

 

Website Update 2020

We continue to use outdated software and continue to publish our website in-house. This gives me the flexibility to make changes and keep costs down. At this point in my career I will continue the website as is. This year for some reason the text formatting has been a problem.††
