Former C-Mart Gets Facelift, New Tenant
A Gavigan's furniture will soon fill the vacant building.
Gavigan's Furniture is coming to Forest Hill as early as August, filling the building that used to house C-Mart
A Gavigan's employee confirmed the store will be opening at that location as early as August or September. The new tenant is bringing a facelift to the building, which has fallen into disarray over the years.
The building is located at 1503 Rock Spring Road, just over the line dividing Bel Air and Forest Hill, and for years was occupied by the discount store C-Mart.
In 2008, the store went out of business, according to a story on TheDailyRecord.com. A long succession of business has followed C-Mart including discount retail and auction house The Big TARP, a flea market and most recently DJ's Liquidation.
There have been obvious changes made to the outside of the building and the updates are catching the attention of local residents.
Four people submitted questions to Patch this week alone asking about the building's future.
The C-Mart logo has been covered by a fresh coat of paint and scaffolding lines the front and side of the building in preparation for installation of a new facade.
Have you noticed the changes to the former C-Mart? Do you feel Gavigan's Furniture is a good fit for that shopping center? Leave a comment.
