1548 Adams Avenue

1548 Adams Avenue, on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places since 2013, finally has a new owner.

1550 Adams Avenue last year

Andy Volodarski bought it and 1550 Adams Avenue this year and has begun renovating 1550 Adams Avenue for his business.  When you come up Kensington Avenue look for the Mattress sale signs.

The business will take over 1550 and 1548 will eventually be restored to a habitable residence.  Right now his priority is to get the business up and running.

Andy was well aware of the challenges of taking on the property but thought it was worth the risk, in this up and coming area.  This is a plus for Frankford business that we hope will also help preserve a piece of our history.

Mattress Outlet’s other locations are at 815 E. Allegheny Avenue and 3826 Kensington Avenue.
