    See If They Will Let You Put An Ad At Your Local Farm Supply Store Or Equipment Shop. Scan The Local Classifieds....maybe Even Talk To Some Commercial Property Managers And See About A Swap Services/4/rent Deal But Get That One In Writing !!

    That varies widely depending on what part of town, location (visibility), size, amenities, etc, etc. Anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand/month for rent... I mean, if you wanted something with a location and size of a Walmart, you'd be looking at 5 digits LOL but it has to do a lot with location and size (Sq. footage).
