HUNTINGTON — Peddlers Mall, a Kentucky- based chain of local flea markets, is set to open its newest brick-and-mortar store at 800 14th St. West in Central City in Huntington’s West End, in the former Big Lots building.

“We are eagerly anticipating our arrival into the Huntington community and excited to meet the antique and vintage lovers of West Virginia,’’ said Taylor Logsdon, Peddlers’ marketing director.

Logsdon said Peddlers Mall specializes in vintage items, antiques, furniture, home décor and new merchandise.

Jessica and Justin Breeding of Ashland were at Peddlers Mall on Tuesday.

“We heard about it and wanted to check it out and see what all they have here,” Jessica Breeding said.

Jason Browning, of Huntington, said he was glad to see something go into the old Big Lots location.

“It such a big space, and I was wondering who would take it over,” he said. “Hopefully, the community supports it and it does well.”

A soft opening took place Sunday. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Saturday, June 4. The grand opening will include giveaways, food, music, discounts and raffles.

Logsdon added that Peddlers Mall is accepting vendors for this location. The booth rates start at $145 for an 8-foot by 9-foot area, plus an 8% sales fee.
