Just got the following in my inbox:
Embellish Multispace Salon Dark This Week
Unfortunately our building will not be open for business for the week of Jan. 26th-Jan. 31 due to building and land use issues actively being addressed.
We are working hard to reschedule all of this weeks appointments for next week and will still be taking your calls for future appointments. You can call the salon at (253)752-8144 and leave a message as we will be checking those regularly or you can call Susan at (253) 414-2900 and she will be happy to assist with your appointment needs and any other questions you may have.
Thank you very much for your patience and we apologize for any inconveniences. We will do our best to keep you informed of our status throughout the week. Thanks again and we hope you have a fabulous week.
Hopefully this is just procedural more than anything. In times like this that can prove so difficult for local small business owners, however, it seems acceptions should be made to allow Embellish's doors to stay open while the details are worked out. Pioneers like Patricia who rehab an old, forgotten, and unused building should be celebrated by our city and it's policies and procedures. Hopefully this is just a minor speed bump but, again, I'm sure the timing couldn't be worse.

|If you see a building inspector coming up to your door, lock the door and turn off the lights quick. Pretend you're not there if they knock.This should solve your problems.|

|The latest from my inbox:
"Maintenance has been underway since the closure of the building and we've been making great headway.
Luckily, there's always a silver lining to every cloud and we are still able to service our weekend clients at the Embellish Annex located in the center of Urban Exchange space at 1932 Pacific Ave across the street from the Union Station and north of the Harmon Brewery.
Feel free to give us a call to set up an appointment for Friday or Sat or just come on by and get your hair and your shopping done all in one stop ; )"
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
