Running Into A Client...and a Great Project

If you regularly read our blog, you probably already know that Closets For Life does more than closets.  We design organization solutions for all areas of a home or business.  For example, we recently completed an employee locker design and installation project for a running store. 

The project came about in a very serendipitous way.  Closets For Life business owner, Rick Lyrek, was on a shopping trip for running shoes.  Rick is easy to spot driving around town.  He drives a blue work van that features his company information on the side windows.  So when Rick, an avid runner, stopped at Run N’ Fun, a running store in Burnsville, owner Perry Bach took notice of his van. Perry was looking to install employee lockers at his store and asked Rick if he would take a look at the employee area and give a project quote.

Rick had stopped at Run N’ Fun to look at running shoes for his upcoming race in April, the Boston Marathon.  His visit to Run N’ Fun was to replace a pair of running shoes.  Averaging 30-40 miles of running a week, Lyrek wears out his shoes quickly. 

A design for the employee lockers was decided upon and the lockers were installed in the middle of March.  Both local businesses are happy to be supporting one another and Closets For Life is thankful for the opportunity to work with Run N' Fun on their project.
