Wild Birds Unlimited is moving from its present location at 20485 Mack Avenue in Grosse Pointe Woods, down two blocks south to 20381 Mack Avenue. The new Wild Birds store will occupy the former South Beach tanning salon next to TCBY. The store has been located at its current address for 15 years.
Anticipating that her son, Ryan, will take over the business someday, Kolvacik wanted to purchase a building for the store. Her current location is not for sale and the lease expires at the end of January. After hunting for a store space to buy, Kolvacik said she is very fortunate to find her new space with a lease/purchase option.
Kovalcik said the configuration of the new building is completely different, with one large showroom and no backroom or office.
"Instead, we have a basement and a seed shed that we have built, giving us the same amount of square footage that we have been using. We love the look of the wide open space," Kovalcik said in a release.
The new location has both metered and private lot parking behind the store - with a few more spaces than Wild Birds' current location.
Kolvacik assures her customers that they will be open as usual at the current site and do not anticipate any days that they will be closed while they make the move. The phone number and contact information will remain the same as well. They will be open for business at the new location on Feb. 1.
"I am very excited to bring a new energy to a great space that I think is perfect for us as a long term strategy," Kolvacik said.
