New Stovehouse Renderings Released, Revival Underway!

The historic Martin Stove Building on Governors Drive is the site of Huntsville’s next destination for dining, shopping, and entertainment. Stovehouse was first announced last September along with early sketches of the coming development. But now, the latest renderings reveal the full breadth of the project and showcase the much-anticipated food garden, rooftop wine bar, entertainment stage, and abundant courtyards.

Stovehouse owner/co-developer Danny Yancey purchased the building in 2016 along with his wife Patti and they immediately recognized the historic property’s potential. The goal quickly became to create a new kind of adaptive-reuse project that blended history, innovation, and urban energy—reflecting the character of Huntsville itself.

“From the first time I walked through the huge building, I saw huge potential,” said Danny. “We’re working with Centric Architecture to preserve the past while building a destination that serves Huntsville today. Where Rome Stove and Martin Stove produced durable goods, we’ll be manufacturing leisure.”

When studying the renderings, it’s easy to see the many leisure activities available. A balance of office life, fitness, food, and entertainment make Stovehouse a one-stop shop, creating a seamless transition from a productive workday to a carefree evening.

Stovehouse will offer tenants access to high-quality amenities and a vibrant community hub suited for everything from networking events to family-friendly activities. And its ultra-convenient location near I-565, Memorial Parkway, and Downtown puts it in the center of major Huntsville attractions.

“We already have firm commitments from tenants who will make Stovehouse a unique, high-traffic destination,” stated Stovehouse co-developer and leasing agent Wesley Crunkleton of Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate. “Curating the proper tenant mix at Stovehouse is vital, and we are focused on finding the ideal entertainment, retail, restaurant, and office combination to ensure the development thrives.”

Pet Supplies Plus Coming To Madison In April!

Residents in Madison will soon have a new pet supply store where they can stock up on brand name food, pet toys, necessities, and much more. Pet Supplies Plus, a pet store franchise headquartered in Livonia, Michigan, will open a location in Madison at 4577 Wall Triana Highway.

Ray Bellenfant and his wife Ronda will head the store’s opening as its co-owners with more than 20 years of local business experience under their belts.

“Pet Supplies Plus has the third-largest volume in the pet food retail industry,” stated Ray. “And they are very close to taking over number two. We are thrilled to give Madison even more access to quality food and supplies for their pets.”

The leadership team at Pet Supplies Plus in Madison.

Today, Pet Supplies Plus has 425 locations operating in 33 states, offering a large variety of products at a great value to ensure pets’ overall wellness. Additionally, experienced and knowledgeable team members are available on-site to answer a broad range of questions about dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and fish. Pet Supplies Plus currently has shops in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. However, this will be the first site to open in the Huntsville/Madison area.

“Our love for helping animals runs deep.”

“When we discovered the opportunity to run a franchise for Pet Supplies Plus, we knew it was a perfect fit,” said Ray. “We have been involved in franchises since 1995 and this one offered us a unique chance to be involved with a company that’s driven by an important cause—the wellbeing of animals.”

Experience alone isn’t the only thing that makes Ray and Ronda the ideal team to manage the store. The pair currently holds the record for most pets owned by anyone who has opened a Pet Supplies Plus location.

“At the time of the agreement, we had four horses, four donkeys, six dogs, five cats, and a fish,” laughed Ray. “We also foster for A New Leash On Life and make periodic donations to the organization. Helping animals is something we’ve always made a priority. Our family has always had a love for them.”

The new store will be another way that Ray and Ronda plan to give back to the community and the animals they care for.

“They are more than customers—they are our neighbors,” said Ray. Pet Supplies Plus neighbors, nationwide, come into the stores with their pets so frequently, they become like family. “We can’t wait to meet each and every owner and their beloved pets.”

“Our goal is to take the hassle out of shopping for your pet,” said Ray. “We plan on having several services that help the local animal community and the owners who love them.”

Soon after their official opening, the pet store will be able to host fundraisers by partnering with local school teams/clubs or churches to help them earn funds for different causes.

“Instead of a car wash, it’s a pet wash,” joked Ray. “We will provide the necessary supplies they need to make the fundraiser a success.”

A New Leash On Life will also host some adoption events at the store and periodic fundraisers will allow customers to come in, purchase any item and donate it to the animal shelter or charity of their choice.

“We’ll make sure the donated items are delivered to the right charity,” assured Ronda. “Anyone with a heart to give will be able to do so without any hassle involved. That’s what you do for your neighbor—you help them out. We just make the process a little easier.”

“We offer quality products at a quality price.”

Pet Supplies Plus will carry brand-name products and match prices.“We strive to deliver quality customer service with a neighborhood feel,” said Ray. “You can be assured that you will purchase products for the lowest prices in the market. And we have plans to incorporate other services that will make life easier for our neighbors.”

In addition to pet grooming, the shop will have a VIP pick-up area with designated parking for customers on-the-go.

“Basically, you order online, park your car, and we deliver it to your vehicle,” explained Ray. “Veterinarians will also be coming to the store on certain days to a clinic we will have at the back of the store.”

An agreement with local, quality vets will allow the store to offer services like microchipping, vaccines, and more.

“Come see us in April!”

Be sure to drop by the new store in Madison when they have their soft opening this April. Ray and Ronda are ready to meet their new neighbors—and their pets too, of course.

“We hope you all come meet us soon and we will strive to give you the best customer care for your pets,” assured Ray. “They are an important part of the family, and we will help ensure they are taken care of. Great customer care and a neighborhood feel—that’s what we will provide.”

The Grand Opening is currently scheduled for May 11-13.

Rockaxe City Throwing Club, Welcome To Downtown Huntsville!

On the corner of Washington Street and Clinton Avenue, Downtown Huntsville will soon celebrate the opening of its newest addition, Rockaxe City Throwing Club!

The complex will have 12 throwing lanes, a total of 24 targets, and several axe types to choose from to test your skill and compete against friends, family, or even competitors across the globe.

Carly Seldon, Event Coordinator at Rockaxe, said they have many fun things in the works for guests in the coming weeks.

“Our staff has been training for months, preparing the space, and practicing the craft to make sure we are ready for our Grand Opening on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th),” she said. “It has been great to work with such an awesome team. We’ve come up with some creative ideas that will make your visit to Rockaxe a memorable one.”

But what brought Rockaxe to Downtown Huntsville? It turns out the owner has a love of the sport and a passion for the Rocket City.

Discovering The Sport

“Our owner, Tim Talbot, is a traveling ER doctor,” explained Carly. “A few years ago, he went to Canada with his sons and they ended up throwing axes every day while they were there. Because his sons are from Huntsville and he lives Downtown, he thought it was time to bring the sport home.”

Since then, Tim has worked tirelessly to make his dream a reality. Very soon, competitors will be welcomed into the space to experience what Rockaxe hopes will become Downtown Huntsville’s newest pastime.

“The space itself is very unique,” said Carly. “It has been designed to look like you’re outside at night. Imagine black ceiling paint, pendant lights, and twilight scenes. We will even make some of the beams look like trees.”

Rockaxe also has real-time cameras installed within each lane that are designed to make competitions more interesting.

“HDI cameras are available so guests can compete in real time with other ‘axeperts’ around the world,” said Carly. “Our staff has already been challenged by the team in Galway, Ireland. We plan to take them up on that offer soon!”

With competitions going on all over the globe at any given time, it’s easy to see that this sport is becoming a favorite among many major urban cities.

The Rise Of Urban Axe Throwing

According to Carly, urban axe throwing has been growing steadily in popularity over the last few years, making its way from Canada to the rest of the world.

“The sport began in Canada around 10 or 15 years ago,” she explained. “There were so many people interested that an official organization was created for it. It’s called the World Axe Throwing League (WATL), and we are the only location in Alabama that is accredited by the group.”

At Rockaxe, competitors will find camp axes, fireman axes, and more. But in order to compete for WATL, they must use a regulation axe with very specific standards.

“It helps to create consistency and fairness for every competition,” said Carly. “Our Grand Opening will be the first major competition to happen in the state of Alabama under WATL, and the winner will be the official state champion.”

Want To Join The Alabama WATL League?

Anyone interested in becoming an “Axepert”, as Rockaxe calls it, can join an 8-week long league series.

Huntsville axe throwing enthusiasts will meet on Tuesday and Wednesday night for two hours of throwing and competition with other leagues in the South and across the world.

Instruction is provided on the first evening and the competition runs for seven weeks. All points will count toward an international ranking and can earn league members a trip to the WATL World Championship to represent Alabama!

So be sure to head over to Rockaxe and test your skills on St. Patrick’s Day!

Downtown Huntsville Property To Undergo Renovation: 117 Clinton Avenue

Vibrant Clinton Row in the heart of Downtown Huntsville has steadily grown into one of the city’s most unique and frequented retail destinations. Illuminated by its many shops and boutiques and adorned with twinkling string lights, Clinton Row is easily recognized when exploring the Downtown neighborhood.

Over the years, you watched as Clinton Row made its transformation to the retail, dining, and entertainment hub that it is today. A city parking deck became The Garage at Clinton Row retail center. Downtown storage units were converted into the Clinton Row Shops— home to more than a dozen independently owned and operated stores. U.G. White Mercantile added even more unique, quality goods to the area and Pints & Pixels brought delicious food and fun.

Very soon, Clinton Row will be introducing its next opportunity for new restaurant and retail concepts to join this popular scene.

Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate is excited to announce that 117 Clinton Avenue is scheduled to receive major renovations that will make it the ideal home for Clinton Row’s next exciting retail shop or restaurant.

Proposed renovations for 117 Clinton Avenue.

The location currently has two units available for lease, and more information can be found here. Stay tuned to our blog for more updates as this project moves along.

Interested parties can contact Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate Group for more information by calling 256-536-8809. Or send an email to info@crunkletonassociates.com.
