New Business To Open on Newport's Monmouth Street

If you’ve driven down Monmouth Street in Newport recently, chances are you have noticed the changes happening to the building two doors down from Ebert’s Meats.

Fort Thomas resident, Michael Smith, has bought 935 Monmouth Street to completely renovate the building inside and out to move his business' headquarters there.

Smith owns Eighty Twenty Design Group.

He purchased the building, which formerly housed Melody Manor Dog Groomer’s, in October of 2016 and has been completing the historic renovation with help from family and friends ever since.

Smith said that after thousands of hours of hard work, the building is now restored to its full glory. It features the original hardwood floors, tin ceiling, exposed brick, and historic storefront.

Eighty Twenty Design Group is a residential and commercial Interior Design company specializing in residential room makeovers, remodel planning and design, and commercial design consulting. The Newport location will house Eighty Twenty Design Group’s office and design studio, along with his retail home store and event space, "Headquarters".

"Headquarters" will sell furniture, home decor, and accessories. Eighty Twenty will host upcoming DIY workshops, and can be found around Northern Kentucky working on residential and commercial design projects.

A grand opening will be held Saturday, September 2, 2017 to see the historic renovation. If you can't make the grand opening, 935 Monmouth Street will also be featured on the Newport "Beyond The Curb" Urban Loft Tour on October 1, 2017.
