LOUISVILLE, Ky. – After 24 years on Goss Avenue, The Louisville Antique Mall will relocate. Owner Denise Golden purchased a building at 834 East Broadway and will move the mall to its new location next year.
The building is just two traffic lights down from the Louisville antique havens of Baxter Avenue and Bardstown Road, and just around the corner from Louisville Stoneware. It is Golden’s hope that the Broadway and Campbell location will offer her business better visibility and easier accessibility.
According to Golden, the building at the new location will undergo a major renovation. The 80-year-old, five-story Art Deco structure will get a new roof, new windows and new HVAC. It will, importantly, still be an antique mall.
“One of the things customers like about our Goss Avenue location is the ambience of an old building,” Golden said. “It just seems to fit with what we sell. We’ll still have that, but it will be much more comfortable.”
The mall will occupy all five floors with elevator service to a cafe’ on the top floor, which will provide a view of downtown Louisville.
What won’t change, said Golden, is the selection of quality antiques, rugs, and furniture for which Louisville Antique Mall is known. The new space will feature of room to accommodate the mall’s current 200+ experienced antique dealers.
Built in the late 1920s, the building originally housed the Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company. It later merged with American Radiator and eventually became known as American Standard. Most of the floors had been vacant and in disrepair for a long time.
