SALISBURY, MD – June 22, 2016 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, today announced it has been hired to renovate the shopping center at 1135 South Salisbury Blvd. in Salisbury, Maryland (formerly home to Horner Honda).
“It is always a pleasure to have the opportunity to help a friend out with a new venture,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “We look forward to giving the shopping center a fresh new look to attract tenants to the space so the Hafez family business can continue to grow.”
The renovation of the 9,000 square foot building will split the property into three separate units with new exterior work including a new glass storefront and additional parking.
“Dwight Miller is a friend and I have seen the work that Gillis Gilkerson does which is why we hired them for the job,” said Maher Hafez, A&M Family Group LLC. “With the interactions and relationships we are building with Gillis Gilkerson, we plan to be a client of theirs from now on.”
The 9,000 square foot building will be divided into three 3,000 square foot units available for different retail tenants to move into the space. Owners are still in the process of naming the shopping center. Gillis project manager Tyler Barnes reported demolition has begun and permit proceedings are well underway.
