EUGENE, Ore. — A Eugene business owner decided it was time to spruce up his downtown storefront. Brenner’s Furniture is now getting a face lift.
The big ‘B’ of Brenner’s Furniture in downtown Eugene came down Tuesday. It’s part of a project to revamp the entire storefront.
When that part of the awning came down, crews uncovered a star. The owner says he doesn’t know what use to be there, but he plans to look into it.
Brenner’s Furniture has been in Eugene since 1938. The storefront was last updated more than 20 years ago. The owner says the new storefront will take their business into the future, lasting for the next 25 to 35 years.
“We feel our customer service that we have inside the building is something that is not represented on the front side of our building. So now we’re going to have an image from the front side to the back side that represents us as best as we can,” said David Fendrich, Owner of Brenner’s Furniture.
The finished product will have eight new awnings, signage and lighting. It will also be easier to clean and will take less upkeep.
This project is expected to be completed by the end of October. One interesting note: the man that put up the original awning is the man who’s taking it down.
