WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Mary Avenue Market in Waco will be opening its doors soon.

The market is a newly renovated 1940s warehouse.

"It was a former plumbing supply company and it was a distraught warehouse with chain link fence around. It looked like a disaster," the listing realtor, Gregg Glime, said.

When work is complete, there will be six businesses, including a restaurant.

The businesses are:

The building is just one block away from the Magnolia Market at the Silos.

Joey Oglesby and his wife, Summer Herriage, the owner of Fox & Gray, moved from California to Waco to open the shop. Oglesby, a Baylor grad, said the location is perfect.

"This place is close to the Silos, there's a lot of foot traffic. And we want to be in the middle of it," Oglesby said. "When you're talking about women's fashion and retail, you're always talking about foot traffic."

Other business owners agreed. 

Errol Moorhouse is the co-owner of Iron Willow, an iron-working retail store. He and his wife have a location in Canton but wanted to be in Waco.  

"The downtown area is revitalizing and getting so much more," Moorhouse said. "There's all kinds of neat shops coming in and all around and now is the time to be in."

Construction inside of each unit is still underway.

The market is set to open sometime this spring, possibly as early as April 1st.
