Kurt Loyd opened A New Day Rental LLC in January.
“What we focus on is service,” Loyd said. “We strive to be customer friendly” If someone is having an event, such as graduation parties, weddings, church events and other festivities New Day Rental can help.
The party supplier serves the city of Sandusky, Erie County and the surrounding areas.
A New Day Rental carries tables and chairs in a variety of styles, beautiful colonnade arches, canopies, punch fountains and other items for someone’s party needs. They even have a projector, screen and sound system. Loyd worked at A-1 Rental for about 10 years until it closed in December. It was then he and his wife Debbie decided to purchase most of the party supplies from the former owner. “We try to cover as many different needs as possible” he said. The couple delivers the rented items and picks them up again when the event is over. There is no stress of picking items up while rushing to get ready for a party for customers of New Day Rental. The opportunity the couple took when A-1 closed its doors is entrepreneurship at its most basic form, said Jim Lippus, director of Sandusky Main Street Association. “That is entrepreneurship, taking a risk and providing a service to the community” Lippus said.
