Lexington Home Brands downtown Design Studio damaged
September 19, 2017,
HIGH POINT – Lexington Home Brands expects to have repairs to its downtown Design Studio completed by the Oct. 14-18 High Point Market, following an accident in which a police car crashed into the side of the building this past weekend.
The incident occurred at the intersection of East Commerce Avenue and South Wrenn Street Saturday afternoon when an officer was moving his patrol car to let construction equipment pass, according to Fox 8 News.
Haney did not have a dollar estimate relating to the damage but says it was fairly extensive, including damage to masonry and windows on the side of the building.
“It is unfortunate to have something like that happen so close to market, but we think we will be able to get it repaired before market,” he says, adding that a contractor was at the scene 10 minutes after the incident and was able to secure the damaged area with plywood.
“We are on it,” Haney says. “When people come to market, they will never know a thing happened to it.”
