From Auto Parts to 80″ Screens
When John Wall’s lease was about to expire on a small, out-of-the-way South Industrial location, he decided The TV Warehouse was ready for bigger and more visible digs. He subleased the former Advance Auto Parts storeroom on Packard then set to work on renovations. A new ceiling, linoleum floor, and partitions were finished and walls were still wet with paint on August 15, three days before the store’s official opening. As employees hurried to build and arrange shelves, a former customer walked through the open door and walked out with a television set. “We’re taking that as a good sign,” says store manager Adam Muszkiewicz, grinning.
