EUGENE, Ore. -- Brenner's furniture in downtown Eugene took the first steps in a major makeover Tuesday as construction began on their 8th Avenue store.
The remodel effort started with removing the old Brenner's storefront sign from the front of the building. Owners said that the project is in part to help revitalize the downtown business community and modernize their building.
"The overall vibe of downtown is changing and so we need to change too." said David Fenderich, a part owner of the downtown location.
Brenner's said that the remodel project will include new signs, awnings, LED lighting and foliage on the sidewalk. They said that construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of October.
Brenner's Furniture has been a family owned business headquartered in Eugene since the 1930's.
