Adorable Child relocating to Village Green center

Farragut’s popular children’s consignment shop, The Adorable Child, will be relocating just across the street in the coming months.

Owner Brad Hobbs announced last week the store will move to Village Green shopping center in the location formerly housing Tuesday Morning, which closed last fall.

Hobbs said they are looking at a few months of renovations, while also maintaining its present location, 11416 Kingston Pike.

“We have been in business 15 years and have simply outgrown our space,” he said. “This will be the third time we’ve expanded. The first two, we knocked out walls in our location. Now there are no more walls to knock out.

“I’ve had my eye on Village Green for a number of years, but never had a space the right size to grow into until Tuesday Morning closed,” he added. “That began a six-month journey that culminated in signing a lease earlier this month.

“The Town of Farragut (recently) issued our building permit to begin the buildout. That should take about two months. We are hoping to begin populating the space with inventory in June for a grand opening during our Fall Debut in July.”
