Lincoln Mill will soon welcome a Huntsville-based decorative plumbing fixtures studio to its campus. Heritage Kitchen + Bath, a fixtures showroom that features an abundance of beautifully curated brands, will move from its location on Washington Street into the redeveloped property on Meridian Street. Showroom Manager Heather Herrington said that the team was immediately drawn to the historic property and looks forward to becoming part of a thriving neighborhood with other interiors-focused businesses nearby.
Heritage Kitchen + Bath will open at its new Lincoln Mill location during Q2 2021. Hours of operation will be Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“Many of the established shops on the Meridian Street corridor feature items for the home,” said Heather. “Being near businesses like Brooks & Collier, Preservation Co., and Holtz Leather is a natural fit for us. We think the new location will give us the visual we need to bring in more walk-in customers. Our new showroom will have better accessibility, convenient parking, and be part of a historically significant project. We are very excited about the move.”
Heritage Kitchen + Bath began when Heather and her husband Ron wanted to create an official showroom for GLS Supply, the plumbing fixtures business where Ron was a partner. Rather than develop in an existing warehouse space, the couple decided to engineer a more retail-centric concept. Inside the showroom, guests will find a long list of fixtures and finishes including free-standing tubs, plumbing, sinks, accessories, mirrors, and more. And it’s all presented in a beautifully designed space that helps clients visualize their building or remolding projects.
“Our new location will have a completely different vibe—more industrial and casual,” shared Heather. “It will feature a lot of darker woods, carbon steel, and reclaimed wood. We also plan to add some new visual features like a working shower display and tub fountain.”
Heather also said that the Lincoln Mill showroom will have an added retail area where guests can purchase cash-and-carry items. This is something the group has not offered in the past and is excited to bring to the new spot.
“We plan to move out of our current space around the end of March,” said Heather. “We want people to know that we will be fully operational during the move and throughout the entirety of our buildout.”
The team at HK+B plans to work with customers by doing on-site visits and working out of their warehouse until the move is complete. They have also partnered with the Home Builders Association to secure a conference room for all client-facing meetings.
“There are many reasons we decided to make the move to Lincoln Mill,” said Heather. “But, more than anything, we believe it will allow us to better serve our clients and give them much-needed peace of mind during stressful building or remolding projects. Come see us when we open and let us know how we can help you create your dream space.”
Last week, the local news announced that a new concept was making its way to downtown Huntsville. This new convenience store, known as DGX, will open on the ground floor of the newly constructed city parking deck at Greene Street and Holmes Avenue. DGX is a creation from the Dollar General corporation “designed to meet the unique needs of customers living, working, and visiting vibrant metropolitan centers.” This is the first DGX store to open in the state of Alabama.
A new gourmet burger restaurant recently opened in Jones Valley, inviting Huntsville to sample a menu of fresh casual fare that appeals to everyone in the family. Cheeseburger Bobby’s, an eatery founded in 2007 by Bobby Stoll, now has several locations as the franchise has grown in popularity throughout the Southeast. Its space at Legacy Marketplace in Jones Valley will serve the brand’s signature menu along with fast, friendly service.
