(AP) A new Illinois chandelerie company says it plans to open a store in Champaign-Urbana, and it says it’s bringing in some local talent.
The Chicago-based chain called its first Champaign location last month, and its second store is scheduled to open in early December.
The new store will feature a large, circular chandeliere.
The chain says it’ll offer about 20 different designs and colors, with some limited to 10 customers.
“We’ve made a huge investment in the Champaign area, and we are excited to offer this incredible community a true destination for Champaign, Illinois, to be proud of,” said Tim Pincus, owner of Pincuses, an Illinois-based specialty food company.
Pincus said the company is in the process of obtaining a liquor license, which would allow the Champagne Chandeliers to sell wine, beer and liquor.
Champaign has about 2,000 residents, about a third of whom live in the suburbs.
The new location will be in a former industrial building at 910 W. Washington St., just off the Champagnes River.
The building, owned by an investment firm called Kravis Group, is owned by the city of Champaign.
