Building the new store has a strict timetable tied to the larger project within the framework of the initiation and completion dates you have specified. This chapter offers a working timeline for planning and opening the new store. It explores some steps to develop timeline from business plan to opening the new store. They are: drafting ideas into a workable plan, Establishing a realistic timeline for construction and Introducing the store to the community. It is important to have the store ready for business the same day the museum opens. Count backwards from opening day to make building, hiring, and merchandising schedules. Celebrating the opening of the new or newly remodeled store generates public and media interest. Use the grand opening as a chance to educate the museum's members and the public at large about the store and its supportive relationship with our institution.
