I was charged a $75 late fee because the company does not accept payments on Saturdays and Sundays so it wasn't processed until the 27th which was on Monday. This credit line is under my...

Being a single member LLC wouldn't change whether or not the late fee can be assessed on the company. It sort of depends on the contract you signed requiring you to pay in the first place to determine whether or not the late fee was properly assessed.

If you're asking whether or not you can conduct business in the name of an LLC you own, in more than one location, the answer is probably. I imagine there could be local restrictions, website rules, mark licensing, or some other reasons particular to your brand that makes this question unanswerable.
Winds blew it open, broke the top seal and bent the metal bar. He claims in the lease the exterior walls and roof, and structural maintenance, repair and replacement of the building and its foundation and that it doesn't include the door.
