railroadDang it,
They're at it again!

The railroad tracks near our warehouse are undergoing construction, so periodically they've been closing our street, Tanglewood Drive.  It is still very easy to get to us from Kenilworth Avenue, but unfortunately, for most of September there will be a "Road Closed to Thru Traffic" sign that might confuse and scare folks away (Please go to www.communityforklift.com/directions.cfm for detailed directions around the closure.  Ignore the map - just follow the printed directions).

Upcoming Events! 

�         Community Forklift Tool Sale - we're having our biannual tool sale on October 4th.  Get here early - doors open at 9 am, and there's usually a line outside the gate!
