After more than two years of construction and obstacles, owner Chris Hedgecock is excited to announce the opening of a unique new business in Douglasville. Town & Country Fabrics and Upholstery opened its doors to the public and celebrated their grand opening with a Chamber ribbon cutting on Aug. 27 at their completely renovated location in Downtown Douglasville, 6660 Broad Street in Downtown Douglasville.
Due to rapid growth, Town and Country has been forced to relocate three times in the last five years. Each location has been more than twice the size of the one prior. The building was completely gutted and rebuilt over the past two years only to be hit by a tornado a year into construction. The current location is 7000 square feet, and houses an upholstery shop, drapery shop, custom furniture shop, and a fabric store. Town and Country’s new home has allowed them to expand our ability to better serve their customers. They continue offer reupholstery services, but are now able to custom build upholstered furniture to suit residential and commercial needs. In addition, a drapery workroom has been added for customers with high-end window covering needs. For walk-in customers and visitors to the downtown area, the on-site fabric store ensures that customers will find everything they need under one roof.
Douglas County Chamber President and CEO, Kali Boatright, congratulated Chris on the completion of construction and opening. “The DC Chamber is so excited to have such a creative and unique business in Douglasville,” commented Boatright. “Bringing unique business ventures to downtown is a great boost for the vibrant business community and we look forward to supporting your business and helping in any way we can to make your business succeed!”
City of Douglasville Main Street Manager Stephanie Aylworth provided comments on behalf of the Downtown Development Authority stating, “Town and Country has already become an intricate partner in the Downtown business community by receiving façade grants, awards, and actively participating on numerous committees. We are thrilled to have such a compassionate member in our community and look forward to working with Chris and his business for years to come!”
