In 1967 1200 sq. feet were added, 1800 sq, feet were added in 1979, and in 1987 a 640 sq. ft. mini storage was added. Harvey and Sonja's son, Mark, started in the business full time in 1979 and continues to manage the business with his Parents. Mark has a son in college, Paul and a daughter in high school, Hannah who play a part in operating the business between going to school and other activities.
