Retail doors are opening in Springfield. Records, books, bikes, skates, art, films, artfilms, special events, etc will be featured in the city's best retail location. Ever. Tons of parking. Independent music store Inertia will be the anchor tenant.
We'll be open as soon as possible but dates have not been announced.
The Buyers Market Lodge (working title) will also have retail products including bikes, art, records, a possible news stand. The Lodge is in whats now known as Frank Darty Auto Sales. Its got an American Flag pasted to it. It is between Springfield Station and Chans on Main Street, in Historic Springfield. Our alley leads directly to a pub called Shanty Town.
Nearly unlimited parking.
The chiefs are Biggie Tea, Triclops, and Josh. If you are interested in showcasing your creative product in our space, let us know.
This project is only possible because of benevolent landlord Mack Bissette of SRG Homes and Neighborhoods. Thanks Mack!
Speaking of SRG, here is an interesting note from the Daily Record.
According to real estate analyst Ray Rodriguez of the Real Estate Strategy Center of North Florida, Inc., the best performing submarket in the area this year so far is Springfield, where home prices are up 22 percent over last year. The worst is San Marco, where home prices have dropped 25 percent.
Have a great long weekend.
