Whiskey City Salvage to reopen in a new building
PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) – Whiskey City Salvage, formerly known as Whiskey City Architectural Salvage, is reopening with new space and some unique finds.
The new store is located at 1000 SW Jefferson St. in Peoria and will have a grand reopening to the public on Saturday, November 27, starting at 9 a.m. The business opened in 2015 on Washington Street but closed just over a year ago to relocate and undergo renovations.
The store sells salvaged furniture, building materials, hardware, doors and windows, light fixtures and more. Homeowners are researching in Peoria or scouring the country for the next gems to include in their store or to make new furniture from.
Bill Sullivan, one of the owners, said salvage reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and helps reuse expensive building materials.
âSalvage is another way to get these types of materials where you don’t have to go to a big box store. You can support a local business that’s a small businessâ¦ and that’s another avenue for Peoria, âSullivan said. âThere are a lot of old houses in Peoria. It’s a resource that is sometimes forgotten until you need it.
The big reopening event starts tomorrow at 9 a.m. and continues until 2 p.m.
