Rust & Martin moving to Regents ParcPosted Wednesday, May 26, 2010, at 11:36 AM
After 20 years at its William Street location, Rust & Martin, Inc., is moving the Regent's Parc building at 1610 N. Kingshighway in Cape Girardeau.
Regent's Parc also is home to Saffron, Primo Vino and Salon Brielle.
The new store, on the second floor of the Regent's Parc building can be accessed from the back of the building.
Its new 6,600 square-foot space will be about the same size as its existing showroom, however, the area will be arranged differently, said Michael Rust, owner.
The new space will allow more room for samples to meet growing demands for special order furniture purchases.
"Our business has continued to morph and change," said Rust. "Everybody wants something different."
Major renovations will soon be underway at Regents Parc to prepare for the move. Much of the area is currently unfinished space, Rust said. New signage will be placed on the building as well.
Buyers will find some deals this summer as Rust works to liquidate his entire inventory.
He said he intends to buy all new pieces for the new location with a more cutting edge look.
Rust hopes to open at the new location in Regent's Parc in late summer or early September.
Since Rust's grandfather opened Rust & Martin in 1933, he said the business has moved about every 20 to 25 years.
Rust also owns Ashley Bailey Custom Cabinetry, which will remain open at 127 Main Street.
