Just shy of 10 years in its Jackson Ward storefront, a bath and kitchen showroom is closing.
Renovation Resources, located at 18 W. Broad St., plans to close April 2. Owner Kevin Korda confirmed the closure but would not comment further for this story.
The venture has been open since October 2006. It sells faucets, sinks, tubs, showers, tile and other items for property renovations.
The business’ 2,000-square-foot space is for lease. Kerry Riley of Joyner Commercial has the listing, according to a sign in Renovation Resources’ window. Its 8,000-square-foot
building, which includes apartments above the ground-floor retail space, is owned by C&L Holdings, of which Korda is the registered agent.
The property’s front door sits just a few feet from where West Broad Street veers off onto Brook Road, and from the future home of the much-debated Maggie L. Walker statue.
The property is also across the street from the site of a planned bus station to be built for GRTC’s forthcoming rapid transit bus line.
It is sad that you do not know where Jackson Ward is.
This store is located in the Old and Historic Broad Street District and it is not part of Jackson Ward, which begins at Marshall Street.
Look at the maps of the national register districts for yourself.
