A grand opening is like a well-orchestrated symphony. So many parts are involved to make it a success – hiring and training staff, stocking inventory, merchandising and design, installing and testing specialized equipment, interior and exterior signage, coordinating advertising and promotions, and last but not least, the actual construction.
