Let's say a store opened for business two weeks ago and the business hasn't been good for the two weeks it's in business. What is the right phrase to describe the period. Here's my take:

The first two weeks of a clothing store on Third Avenue ...

A period of two weeks of a clothing store on Third Avenue...

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Let's say a store opened for business two weeks ago and the business hasn't been good for the two weeks it's in business. What is the right phrase to describe the period. Here's my take:

The first two weeks of a clothing store on Third Avenue ... OK

A period of two weeks of a clothing store on Third Avenue... Not OK. Doesn't tell me 'first two'.

At a point in time immediately after two weeks, I'd say this.

The last two weeks of business have been terrible.

Business has been terrible for the last two weeks.

I'd prefer referring to "two weeks of business" rather than "two weeks of a store":

The first two weeks of business for (the new) ABC Store on Third Avenue were dismal/terrible.
