Avenue Art and Framing

Stabilization Grant, Spring 2009

Avenue Art and Framing shop is located in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia on Germantown Avenue.  They provide custom picture framing in an array of sizes and colors.  Also, they have a stock of their own merchandise in their gallery.  The current owner worked for the two founders of the company for 15 years before purchasing the business.  The framing store occupies 800 square feet of workspace, storage, and display.

The framing equipment the owner was using dated back to the founding of the Avenue Art and Framing shop.  Replacing the key equipment will increase her efficiency and generate additional income, and cut costs.
