Real Suggestions please.

My Printing business is very slow and it only uses about 1/3 of my large building. My shop sits right on the main highway and 10 of thousands of cars drive by every day. I need suggestions to what I could put in the rest of the building to make money. Any Suggestions?

How close is the nearest exit? Maybe run a chain restaurant out of a portion of the building?

My shop sit about 3 blocks south of downtown, the building was an old gas station in the 40's. it has two large bays and the main part which I run my printing & sign business.

You could always fill it up with old mercedes and mercedes parts.

Naturally I can sell you plenty of both for a small price!

I have one of only three Benzes in the county, so I don't think that would work.

Car detail shop? Used car dealership? I'm assuming that the garage doors for the bays are visible from the highway. The only caveat about having an automotive-based tenant is that they have an unattractive habit of pouring petro products down floor drains, leaving you as the property owner to hold the environmental bag down the road. You're already Phase I environmental report material based on current and past use of the property. This will become important when you sell the property some day, as banks lending to commercial property buyers are wising up and paying closer attention to the environmental condition of such properties.

No exes, I have been married for 29 years. I live about 40 miles south of Lexington Kentucky in a small town of about 15,000 people, does that help?

Are they on their way in to work in the mornings? How bout setting up a place selling coffee/biscuits and then close it by 11 am where you can go do sign work. Breakfast biscuit places are a hit around here.
