One of the nation's worst disasters of all time, Hurricane Katrina, gave the tent and canopy industry the ultimate test and it has stood up to the challenge.
WalMart in Waveland, Miss., set up a tent quickly after the disaster to answer the need for bare essentials and even a few luxuries.
They put up a 16,000 sq. ft. industrial strength A-frame tent complete with electricity and six 30-ton air conditioners. They were up and running in a very short time doing business to very grateful customers.
If you have a business needing the help of a commercial tent, don't balk about it. Look for what you need and put it to work.
