Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 17, 2015
Alabama Furniture is excited to announce that their second location will be opening on March 28. The grand opening celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Alabama Furniture also has some other surprising information to share with the community. With 12 months left on the lease, they have now begun the countdown for the relocation of the Heights store at 2200 Yale St.
Unfortunately, Alabama Furniture is unsure if they will be able to justify the rent increase on the building. Because of the deep-rooted history of the location, Alabama Furniture is reluctant to leave. The building has been family-owned since the 1940s and Alabama Furniture has rented it for the past 19 years. The property was recently offered and sold to an investment group that is buying a huge portion of the Heights for commercial development.
Those who have created a mainstay in the Heights for many years know how the area is changing and in a big way. Small businesses are not thriving like they used to, and the survival of the American Dream is fading off into the distance. Real estate has changed dramatically over the years while mom-and-pop businesses have remained the focus of the community. Now, with a new year and a new drive in the Heights, corporate ownership is the new focus. Much of the eclectic, one-of-a-kind atmosphere of the area will not be prominent as it has been for many years.
This, however, does not mean bad news for Alabama Furniture. The store has been serving Houston since 1991 and does not plan to change anytime soon. They would like to find and keep another location in the Heights area, but arent sure where that hidden gem is yet.
The new location at 14520 #98 Memorial Drive, Houston, TX 77079 brings the character and atmosphere of the Heights location, but with a completely new and elegant flair that fits right into the Memorial community. It is worth the drive to experience the small businesses and shopping that Memorial has to offer.
