AHHH!!! Talk about stress! Unfortunately, today, I had to make a decision to cancel our pop-up shop this weekend in old Dublin. On Wednesday, I received the keys to the location and went inside to start unloading furniture. The store smelled TERRIBLE. I spoke to the building manager and a few other business owners next door, and they were all experiencing issues with sewage odor. We were hoping the issue would be fixed by today (Thursday) but I received confirmation that there will not be improvement by the weekend. Thankfully, I never moved any clothes into the store and I just have to move out some furniture pieces.
I asked the city of Dublin what the scoop was and here was their response:
“We just found out the City of Columbus is re-constructing the bio-filters along Dublin Road. City of Columbus Department of Public Utilities and the City of Dublin Public Works Department are working together to alleviate the strong odor. We are working on more information and will post it on our website as we get it.”
I hope for the other small business owners in the area that this issue is resolved quickly! I am so sad we can’t have the pop-up there this weekend but the show must go on!
