Chicago makes sense logistically, if not for weather for employees. Close to the midwest and closer to either coast than the opposite coast would be. West is great for you west coasters, more shipping for us folks east, and vice versa. I think if I were setting up a mail order business with flexibility to choose location I'd look for something mid-continent too. (Ok, personally, it would be cheaper, smaller town, and MUCH warmer than Chicago, but I think Atlanta is too damned cold in the winter. The fact it's too damned hot in the summer doesn't really make up for it...)
LA - we love it! we love it! (man we love the 80's :) but, we are more of snow and winter people anyways.
Roger - as you say we are now almost exactly smack in the middle, which means shipping west is cheaper, but shipping east is not - though i must say that after a week or so of orders its fairly safe to say our shipping rates will not change at all for the east, and we are now able to offer some better rates going west.
Seems like atlanta is just damned in general. I cant say much for the chicago summer, or winter for that matter, but its not much better, or worse then our wet and hot summers, and brutal winters in Boston... check our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater) to see the 12ft in 24 hours we got last winter, and that was not all...
Chicago: THE standard for testing concrete materials is Chicago weather.
17 freeze thaw cycles per winter, average.
Perhaps the source of the statement heard often.
"If you don't like the weather wait five minutes...."
You'll love it. Provides every reason to go have a Bratwurst and Beer.
I like living in the Atlanta area in many ways. I'm just SO not a cold weather person though. It does get pretty hot here in the summer, but it never really bothers me that much in all honesty.
