Nov. 20, 2013. Old World Galleries, previously in Blowing Rock, opened up a brand-new location at 697 West King Street in Boone, where owners Charlie and Joy Travis are enjoying building lasting relationships with new clients as well as rekindling friendships with previous clients.
In true keeping with the High Country small business spirit, Old World Galleries will host a grand opening celebration on Friday, Nov. 22 to welcome the community to their new location on King Street.
It was the love of serving clients in the High Country that led Charlie and Joy Travis, and their faithful poodle Ozzie, to open up a new retail location in central Boone.
“We missed seeing our customers and developing relationships. We have had tremendous support from the community so far, and we are seeing our previous customers as well as brand new clients,” Travis said. “We have our loyal customers from Blowing Rock and even new generations of those families coming to us today.”
Old World Galleries will host a grand opening celebration Friday, Nov. 22 from 2-5 p.m. Boone Mayor Loretta Clawson and Blowing Rock Mayor J.B. Lawrence will be cutting the ribbon at 2 p.m. An open house will be hosted from 2-5:30 p.m.
Old World Galleries is located at 697 West King Street in Boone. For more information, give Joy and Charlie a call at 828-264-6559.
Old World Galleries is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
