Neighborhood Comics to Open in Spring 2019
SAVANNAH, GA – Veteran real estate developer, Jeff Notrica of Inman Park Properties, announced a new tenant in his revitalized development located at 1201 Bull Street in downtown. Neighborhood Comics, a boutique comic book shop owned by Lee Heidel, will take 1,000 square feet of the two-story storefront this spring, joining White Whale Craft Ales, which opened in 2016.
“I’m excited to curate such a vibrant mix of local tenants,” said Notrica. “We want to bring local businesses back to the neighborhood.”
Escalating downtown rents have forced out local businesses of late. Notrica’s goal is to give them a place they can thrive.
Neighborhood Comics will target artists, collectors, and fans with original comic artwork, a pop-up gallery, and art supplies. Formerly operating as an online retailer, this will be the brand’s first brick-and-mortar store.
The 29,000 square-foot property, just one block south of Forsyth Park, was formerly the Savannah Floor Covering Company. It is comprised of three separate buildings, all built in the 1940s. When it opens this spring, Neighborhood Comics will look forward to more retail as well as a chef-driven restaurant joining the mix.
