Every Thanksgiving, we take a moment to reflect and give thanks for the many things that have happened over the past year.
First and foremost, we are grateful to be part of the growing Huntsville community. So much is happening here that we are excited about. Passionate people who invest time and resources into the Rocket City surround us, and we can’t wait to see what next year will bring!
Here are a few reasons we are thankful this year:
New Team Members & Promotions
Earlier this year, Shelby Smith was promoted to Property Manager. She’s done an outstanding job of overseeing the day-to-day operations of all the properties we manage.
We’ve also brought on two new team members! Jordan McKinney took over as Office Manager and has spent the year assisting the brokers, marketing team, and property management group, as well as tackling any office-related needs we throw at her.
Finally, Mike Arnold joined us as the Associate Property Manager. He serves our growing property management division and makes sure all retail properties run smoothly.
We love our Crunkleton crew!
Businesses Coming To Huntsville/Madison
It’s easy to get excited about the many new businesses that have opened in the Huntsville/Madison area this year. We’ve shared announcements for bakeries, boutiques, restaurants, offices, and more—it has been a busy year.
We had the pleasure of working with several retailers and restaurants in 2018 including The Cuban Café, Maverick Training Center, CHOPCHOP Fresh Salads, The Dessert Fork, Another Broken Egg, The Moon Bakeshop, Clean Juice, Cabana Wax, Pet Wants, Pet Supplies Plus, and Domaine South.
Of course, everyone has had their eyes on Stovehouse, the newest Huntsville destination for dining, shopping, and entertainment. Many office tenants were announced, including Star Lab, Spur, and Onyx Aerospace. And the food garden released the first few eateries to join the development: Pourhouse, Mazzara’s Italian Kitchen, Kamado Ramen, and Oh Crêpe!
That’s right! Downtown Huntsville’s 106 Jefferson is being redeveloped as a boutique hotel. We announced that the former Hale Brother’s Furniture site would become the location of 106 Jefferson Hotel, A Curio Collection by Hilton.
This year, we were honored to help bring several local events to life as sponsoring partners. Each one is special to us, and we’d like to thank the organizers for including us.
June was full of friendly competition downtown. As presenting sponsors of the 2018 Downtown Open, we encouraged the city to grab their friends and enjoy the free urban putt-putt course that was put together by Downtown Huntsville Inc. and many talented companies throughout the city.
Like last year, we brought our set-up to the annual Crush Wine & Food Festival at Big Spring Park. Our tailgating tent was a great place to view the football games!
It was Crunkleton’s first year at the Madison Street Festival and we loved every minute!
We also got to be part of Skating in the Park at the Huntsville Museum of Art! We hope everyone will go by this holiday season and spend a day with family and friends on the ice.
We hope that this Thanksgiving brings you and your loved ones many blessings.
Happy Thanksgiving from Crunkleton!

Over the last couple of years, we have discussed how, despite the growth of online shopping, traditional brick-and-mortar retail continues to thrive. We’ve talked about how much of the highly publicized, and we believe inaccurate, “Retail Apocalypse” is largely due to the decline of the old, enclosed mall model ...
