“We’re moving feet away to 1425 East Douglas,” says owner Shelly Hyson.
That’s the Domestic Laundry building.
“When it came to the move, I had the luxury of time and shopping,” Hyson says.
She had several attractive offers.
“It kind of came down to staying centrally located.”
She’ll take 3,800 square feet in the building, which is a bit less than what she has now.
Hyson has one full-time employee and two part-time employees, and she handles all aspects of sign production, starting with design.
She expects to be in the new space by Feb. 1.
Since Gossen Livingston Associates and McCluggage Van Sickle & Perry merged last year, employees have remained at their original offices while there was a search for a space big enough to hold 100 people.
The new East Douglas space is 30,000 square feet.
Hyson says she’s enjoyed being there, but she’s happy with GLMV’s purchase of the 1930 building, which started as a Packard dealership.
“I can’t wait to see the building when it’s refurbished,” she says. “I know they’re going to do it justice, and it’s going to be beautiful when it’s finished.”
