Joint businesses hope to move to new downtown location
Owner of Elk River Upcylce hopes to join n.wirt design in new South Main property.
ELKHART — Two companies that have shared rental space on South Main Street hope to be relocating just a few blocks to the south in a larger retail space that one of the owners hopes to purchase.
Elk River Upcyle and n.wirt design are located at 205 S. Main St., and the owners hope to move their combo business arrangement to 503 S. Main St., if the sale is approved.
Nancy Wirt and her husband have made an offer on the property. If the plan is finalized, she and Eric Zell, owner of Elk River Upcycle, plan to continue their unique business arrangement in a much larger store.
At 205 S. Main, Zell’s architectural salvage merchandise is displayed on the first floor and Wirt’s interior design business is on the second floor.
Plans to move were part of a string of announcements made Friday morning, Feb. 14, during a news conference hosted by representatives of SoMa at the Lerner Theatre.
