Who buys these type of vacuums as I never see anyone in there for them? I do see a bunch of kids hanging out though taking up parking.

It doubles as a Vacuum Shop and a Trading Card store. The man's name is Dave and he is there usually, you may have caught him out of the office at the time. But yes, kids are there hanging out, including myself, because of the game "Magic the Gathering." It's a trading card game and Dave has events 3 times a week at night where we play tournaments with the cards and bring our decks to face off against others. It's a lot of fun.

I actually am very happy we have a place like this where we can go to have a good time without drinking, or drugs, or w/e being involved. I recommmend this place as my aunt got one of her Vacuums fixed here!
Codes

Best be careful on who is there tending to the business if Dav the owner is not at time. Anyone not there as an employee has no business being there watching the store for liability reasons.

Nobody, by any means, is to be allowed behind counters or near registers if you are not an employee.

Has nothing to do with codes, but you may be in violation if business owner is not on site and leaves just anyone to tend to the business illegally.

If the business owner leaves his business while customers or patrons are in the business still, then that is a liability issue in the end if something were to happen.

If friends who are not employed by the business owner tends the shop while he is out, then there will be an IRS issue, if the friend takes over as the "watch dog" of the shop while owner is gone.

If a friend is behind the counter at any time or near the register, then he is considered an employee. And if not being paid, then there is an issue.

If you don't believe this then look it up for yourself under small business law.

The law may regulate this, but no one will enforce it.

First off it's SOUTH Main street. Second, who the hell cares? I don't give a sh*t if Big Bird is behind the counter. Inspector, you have way too much free f**king time on your hands. You are one of two things: a municipal/government employee who needs to log off and do your job or 2: You don't have have a job and live off the system. Given your literacy level I'm leaning toward the former. Given the fact that most people in Herkimer are welfare bums the latter is nevertheless a definite possibility. Either way, piss off you jackass.

The store in question is a Vacuum business that relocated and used the extra space to expand into the tabletop gaming market. The response seems to have been largely positive, and people go there to buy and play card games and board games. These games are socially oriented, and it is a really positive thing for the community to have. There are a few businesses in the Utica area that serve the same demographic, but none until now in the valley. The store is always clean and the people seem pretty nice, which isn't always the case (the Utica shops are pretty dirty).

I'm not sure why there is all this talk about who is in the store and who runs it. Not sure why it would matter to anyone. If anything it is something the community lacked before, and those customers who hang out for a few hours are often patrons for the local restaurants and eateries. Seems like a good thing to me.

100% complete BS. Also, there is no such thing as "small business law". What a tard.
