Monthly Event Hosted by 2101 Broadway Building (Candle Bldg)
April 23, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Originally built in 1921 as a Piggly Wiggly grocery distribution warehouse. Piggly Wiggly is credited with the first self-service grocery store and opened in Memphis in 1916. Before that all customers placed orders and waited for the clerk to gather their goods. The building’s longstanding user was candle manufacturing from the 1950’s forward until Creative Candle relocated in 2007. The renovated building is a green design expected to receive LEED Gold certification and is approximately 45,000 SF.
Introducing the current tenants: Pezzettino Italian Deli & Market, AdFarm Marketing, and Valorem Consulting. Pezzettino plans to offer some additional food samplings and a live trio will perform. The same ownership group has commenced with the development of the building next door to 2101 Broadway, which is called The Creamery Building, located at 2100 Central and will give tours of that building so attendants can see the “before” condition of the building.
