Urban Home Market helps revitalize Madison shopping center

MADISON – A new experience in home furnishings, custom design and décor is helping lead the way in the renovation of the former Publix shopping center here.

Urban Home Market opened last week next to the Staples on U.S. 72, just west of Hughes Road. The official Madison Chamber ribbon-cutting was Monday. The store is the first in North Alabama for the Birmingham-based company.

Locally owned and operated by Ken and Kate Delgreco, the 12,000 square-foot Urban Home Market is more than just a furniture store, according to a spokesperson from the Birmingham store.

“We have degreed interior designers on staff who can help furnish a new home or you can bring in plans and pictures and get help with custom design fabrics and upholstery,” she said. “Our designers can also come to your home.”

In addition to furniture, the store has lamps and artwork, along with décor and gifts for the holidays.

One of the unique aspects of the store is its local warehouse. If an item is not the floor, it can be pulled from inventory, instead of the customer waiting for it to be delivered from out of town.

Urban Home Market also transfers new inventory from Birmingham every couple of weeks.

They carry popular upholstery and fabric lines by Bernhardt, Universal and Spectra, and may be adding a couple more lines in the coming weeks.

“We specialize in customer service, following every sale from beginning to end to ensure the customer is happy,” the spokesperson said. “Everywhere you look, the Huntsville market is growing like crazy, and we don’t feel like there is another store like us here in Madison, so opening our second location here in Madison was an obvious choice.”

At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Ken Delgreco expressed how excited they are to be in Madison.

“We look forward to our customers getting to know our store manager, Emily Van Winkle, and the rest of the customer service and design team,” said Delgreco. “The reins are fully in your hands now and we know you will treat our new Madison family well.”

Mayor Paul Finley thanked the Delgrecos for their investment in Madison.

“This is huge for the city obviously, but also for joining all the new stores that will be coming into this revitalized shopping center,” he said.
