Moving Pictures

A new configuration on Maple

by Sally Mitani

From the December, 2010 issue

By the time you read this, Frames Unlimited might already be back in its familiar Maple Village address, the freestanding building it shares with Village Kitchen. That space is now being remodeled to accommodate two new tenants.

Frames Unlimited has been temporarily doing business across the parking lot in the main building, adjacent to Plum Market. The new Frames Unlimited will be somewhat smaller. Two new businesses-one a hair salon and one unnamed-are being inserted into its west and southeast ends, making the new Frames Unlimited L-shaped. The downsizing is "perfectly fine with us," says Mark Stoe, area manager. "We had a lot of extra space in the back room. Sales floor-wise, it should be about the same, with a modern, updated look"-a new counter and an open ceiling. Asked whether customers might see any new stock as well, Stoe replied, somewhat huffily, "Our product won't need to change. We get new vendors and more exciting lines all the time," and pointed to the colorful Guerrini line of Italian-made, inlaid wood frames, as an example.

Frames Unlimited is an eighteen-store chain spread across southern Michigan and Ohio. There's another branch on Plymouth Road.

Frames Unlimited, 251 N. Maple Rd., 994-9105. Mon.-Fri. 9:30 a.m.-9 p.m., Sat. 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. framesunlimited.com.    (end of article)
