Adkins Home Furnishings to open in Old Central City

Aug. 29, 2013 @ 07:10 AM

Ryan Adkins has been doing auctions for 12 years with the family business, Adkins Auction, and runs a store in Hamlin. And now he’s opening a store in Old Central City.

Adkins Home Furnishings, located at 727 14th St. West in the old Fitzpatrick furniture building, is planning a grand opening week Sept. 3-7. The store will be half retail and half auction, with both modern and vintage items. The store offers bedroom, dining room and living room furniture — from high end to low end.

“If we don’t have it, ask for a free pass to go to our wholesale warehouse,” he says.

Business hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. To learn more, call 304-781-0085.

WINE & DESIGN: The space formerly occupied by MiAppa in the 900 block of 4th Avenue has a sign in the window for an up and coming new business, Wine & Design. According to the chain’s website, it’s a concept similar to the newly opened Uncork and Create in Barboursville and Charleston, with opportunities to create art while enjoying a night out at a “wine and painting” party. Learn more at www.wineanddesignus.com.

APPALACHIAN BBQ: A new restaurant is opening at 5309 Cherry Lawn Road, near HealthSouth. Owned by chef Brian Fridley, Appalachian BBQ had a grand opening Wednesday.

CENTRAL CITY BUSINESSES: The Parent Teacher Student Organization at Central City Elementary School is looking for business partners for Community Night, planned for 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 27.

The intended purpose of the night is to provide a free “Family Night Out” for parents, teachers, students, and their families, and the PTSO is seeking local businesses who want to set up tables to showcase their services and to either hand out samples or donate a door prize. 

Anyone interested can contact President Deanna Keith at 304-521-3908 or cceptso@gmail.com to obtain registration forms.
