When Dr. Valencia Wells purchased Morris Avenue Eye Care in 2013, moving wasn’t part of the plan. After all, the practice has been in the same location next door to Peanut Depot for 23 years. But as we all know, plans change! When developers purchased the building and announced their intention to repurpose the ground floor, Dr. Wells began to look for a new location. She found space just a few blocks east of her current location… so Morris Avenue Eye Care will remain on Morris Avenue! Stay tuned to their website for more info. REV Birmingham is working with Dr. Wells to identify parking and other solutions that may help offset the costs of the move. Helping small businesses identify commercial real estate and understand and access available incentives are just some of the services REV’s Catalytic Development team offers.
