Alexander Scott open in new spot

Multi-merchant home furnishing company Alexander Scott is now open in its new Myers Park location, co-owner David Newcombe said.

The store had been on East Boulevard, near South Boulevard. The new location is near the Harris Teeter at Providence and Queens (yes, the really big one), in the former Paul Simon store.

Newcombe previously told the Observer that the store moved to be closer to its core client base, many of whom live in Myers Park and Eastover.

"We're not on their beaten path," he said of the East Boulevard location. "We're going to go to their neighborhood so we can be more accessible to them."

The new location is also smaller, with space for 25 vendors instead of the previous 70 at East Boulevard. Newcombe said that allowed the store to pare down its goods to the best-sellers and highest-quality items.
