Hard Goods to Reopen Inside Modern Manor in Phoenix's Melrose District
After announcing the imminent closure of home décor emporium Hard Goods' storefront on Central Avenue, owner and concrete artisan Brandon Gore shared that, instead of shuttering, the shop will relocate to an outpost inside Midcentury furniture store Modern Manor.
Gore says he was approached by the Melrose District mainstay shortly after he announced he would close Hard Goods, and the process of moving the former location's stock to the new space will begin this week. By his estimate, the new location will be open in about two weeks.
Gore signed on to a short-term lease to occupy the room that formerly housed metal lettering. It's been cleared out and will house a display case and shelving for Hard Goods' items.
The same finds from the old spot will appear at the new one, including vintage furniture (which will be displayed throughout Modern Manor), brands Shwood, Bison Made, and Salty and Sweet, and local art from Jon Arvizu and others. But shoppers will find some new additions, too, like Mother of Gideon jewelry and Bend seating.
