We are around so if anything breaks it can be easily fixed, but we not in the way so you can be as independent as you would like.

The unit has convenient, free on-street parking.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
Oregon is a no sales tax state. So enjoy shopping without any taxes.
Also, we do not pump our own gas here. Oregon law requires that gas station attendants pump your fuel for you (a big plus when its rainy).
