This is Tim, Emily and Jennifer's (Tim's sister) new venture. It is in downtown Asheboro, basically main street, but called Sunset Ave. Their store is a 1000 square foot building built in 1924. Tim (mostly) and some of his friends have done awesome renovations on the building, revealing its true charm and authenticity. The stucco wall came down and revealed the original brick. The "fake" ceiling was removed, revealing an original 1924 tongue and groove ceiling. It has been painted, a bar has been built (by Tim), and decorations in place by Emily. Tim's mom (Vicki) and her boyfriend J have been very supportive in this endeavor, helping out with wine coolers, antique apple crates, lighting, wine racks, and moral support.
They plan to be open by Christmas. Please wish them luck.
Here are some pictures taken of the renovations, but not complete yet!

Lumina Wine and Beer is right around the corner from being Asheboro's first wine shop! This little North Carolina town was shaken up in July 2008 when the popular vote was no longer against the sale of alcohol. The idea for this store was born shortly after.
