Re:Schwabl's hit by a car and closed for a few weeks
Another risk for small business owners...and then to have "friends and relatives" knock your freedom of speech rights after shutting down your business and perhaps keeping employees from paychecks is just so wrong.
I just had my building, 3 feet to the right of front door, hit by a driver. The repair has not begun and it's been 5 weeks this coming Monday. After the accident was taken care of and the fire, police, paramedics and tow truck was gone we needed a few things. First we need an emergency inspection, then and emergency repair, then a structural engineering study, then the drawings, then the GC's bidding process began, then permits, then insurance negotiation, then acceptance of bids by insurance, ordering of steel and materials. I am hoping for completion by Christmas which would be about 7 weeks. Included in all this is the disruption to my staff and myself as there will be no compensation for all the hours we have spent working on this unexpected project!
I was fortunate in that no one was injured, the building is repairable, no business was lost, no employees effected...but it stopped short by one inch of a plate glass window behind which an office staff meeting was taking place!
I hope they stand their ground and put up anything they want on the sign!
