Willis & Lowe, a local home decor store, has opened a second location at 807 Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo.
The business, owned by Hal and Christy Petri, debuted at 5444 Main St. in Williamsville in November 1998. The Petris acquired a two-story structure, which had previously housed a Key Bank branch at the corner of Lancaster and Elmwood Avenues, and totally renovated the building to convert it to two floors of retail space.
The new location offers a variety of items for the home, including gourmet cookware, specialty food products, furniture, rugs, gifts, and decorative and seasonal items.
