The Greer Trading Post, scheduled to open in August, is adding some elegance with its historic interior.

Business owners Nate and Jessica Monroe are transforming the former vacant building into a showcase that features historic signage dating to the early 1900s with the elegance of chandeliers and a contemporary interior. Ceiling fans have been installed and the painting was all but completed today. Old farmer cabinets are in the break room and the wood will have a rustic wood stain.

The store at 217 Trade Street will be a consignment shop.

Nate, owner of N Monroe Homes, is doing the upfit. He restores homes and buildings as part of his business. He said he will also be restoring the fixtures that will be added. He has refurbished and installed the cabinets, created a break room and finished the bathroom.

“The goal is to be done within a month and have the furniture moved in soon after,” Nate said. Some display cases originally used in downtown department stores will also be restored and added to the shop.

Jessica held the final meeting with vendors and potential consigners this week. She said she expects to begin stocking the merchandise in early August.

Greg Hall is the owner of the building.
