Long a fixture on South King Street off the Town Branch, Leesburg’s Battery Warehouse has announced its move to East Market Street.
The business’ relocation was not unexpected and comes in advance of construction of King Street Station, a multifamily and commercial development being undertaken by developer Don Knutson. Should those development plans move forward as expected, demolition of the current Battery Warehouse space could come as early as February.
This week, owner Oleg Tatchin announced that he would be moving his shop to a familiar location: the longtime site of Melodee Music on East Market Street. The music shop closed that location last year, moving all its operations to its Sterling facility.
In a press release announcing the move, Tatchin said hopes are to be moved in to the new location by Christmas. The business’ phone number and email address will remain the same. The address of the new building is 320 East Market St.
