Doc’s Relocating to Tennessee
Doc’s Architectural Salvage – an Indianapolis staple for nearly 15 years – will relocate to Springfield, Tenn., by year-end and the Indianapolis location will close.
“The Nashville area is thriving and vital,” Doc Keys, owner, said. “Springfield is a great little town with a beautiful courthouse on the square and other little shops and restaurants that make it a nice day trip from Nashville."
Springfield is approximately 35 minutes north of Nashville.
“The downtown (Nashville) area was too expensive to rent the size warehouse we needed – 35,000 square feet – so I traveled to Nashville’s outskirts until I found large, old, empty tobacco warehouses,” Keys explained. “The building is absolutely perfect with wood floors and brick interior walls to display our inventory, and the price was affordable.”
Keys said that the building itself needed restoration, which included raising the upstairs wooden floors 12 inches in places where it sagged from bearing the weight of tobacco bales over the years, and upgrading the plumbing and electrical systems.
“Even with the move, we still continue to cover all the areas where we have developed great pickers throughout the country, and are always looking to expand our connections farther south,” Keys added.
