Commercial Sheds: Used as a Store Room by Tim Thoennen

Tim Thoennen, owner of Caspers Conoco in Linn Missouri, loves his Classic Buildings Shed! He uses it as a storage space to store extra stock for his busy convenience store. Tim needed extra storage space for his store, but instead of going through the expenses and upheaval of building a costly addition, he purchased a high quality lofted barn from Classic Buildings.

Tim and his staff can quickly enter the shed, find what they need, and get back to their customers as fast as possible


Tim and His Staff Have Easy Access to Their Extra Stock

Tim has twenty people working at Casper’s Conoco at different times of the day and night. Having a highly organized storage shed has become a great asset for Tim and his staff. Everyone knows where everything goes in the shed, so that means if they need something to stock in the store, they can quickly enter the shed, find where it is, and get back to their customers as fast as possible. This makes for a first-rate customer experience.

Tim has assigned each of his suppliers their own spot in the shed for their products


Tim’s Suppliers Each Have Their Own Section of the Shed for Their Product for Easy Ordering and Deliveries

Tim’s suppliers enjoy the convenience of his storage shed as well. Tim has assigned each one their own spot in the shed for their products. Whether the vendor is from Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, etc, their pre-sales team can enter the shed, go right to their spot, and quickly determine what the store needs for an order. When the deliveries come, the drivers know exactly where to leave their products, which means Tim’s staff don’t have to waste time moving it later.

Having the extra space allows Tim to purchase stock for his store in bulk and save


The Extra Space Allows Tim to Buy in Bulk and Save Even More

Having the extra space has made it so that Tim can purchase stock for his store in bulk, which in turn lowers the cost of these items. He is now free to go to food shows every year and buy all of the food that they will sell in the store for that year. As the stock comes in each month, he now has a place for them. And buying in larger quantities means that he can get a discount on his purchases including soda, juices, cups, lids, containers, and seasonal stuff that he carries each year.

Tim can store everything from the promotional items to the kitchen slow cookers in his shed


“The Value and Quality of This Shed Has Been Amazing!”

According to Tim, “The Value and Quality of This Shed Has Been Amazing!” It has been a tremendous help for him by giving him a place to store everything from the promotional items to the kitchen slow cookers from their breakfast and Caspers deli items. They also use it to store any items that they can’t keep in the store. For example, if they have a breakfast and they need the extra cookers, they can easily access them in the shed.
