Gillis Gilkerson was hired to build the new 60,000 square foot Johnny Janosik World of Furniture Store in Dover, Delaware. The team, led by project manager Matt Esham, built the 1-story structure to include natural stacked stone veneer and wood siding, metal panels and glass
In 2015, Janosik stakeholders chose to consolidate two Dover store locations into one first class, contemporary furniture store. Through David Wilk at SVN Miller Commercial Real Estate, Devreco developers approached the business and spent several months negotiating a lease from the Janosik family.
The development team signed a sale leaseback agreement to purchase seven acres of land along Rt. 13 in Dover from the Janosik family to build the new store for Johnny Janosik World of Furniture.
