Hancock Fabrics is on the move – to Stones River Mall, that is.
Currently located next to Murfreesboro Athletic Club on Memorial Boulevard, the fabric supply store will relocate to the former Goody’s location in Stones River Mall, a company spokesman confirmed.
The Murfreesboro store will expand its fabrics selection and add a crafts section, said Dave Gilbert, a district manager for Hancock Fabrics.
While an opening date hasn’t been set, Gilbert said he expects the move to take place in January.
“We initially hoped to make the move (sooner) … but a lot of stuff has to be done construction wise to get the space ready for us,” he said, adding the new space was chosen because it offers additional space, increased exposure, and more nearby retailers.
Find counselors on new website
The Rutherford County Psychotherapy Association has announced the implementation of its new website, www.rcpa.co.
“Anyone searching for a suitable counselor can use the search engine at this website,” said Jean Landphair, president of the association. “Users can search by such criteria as type of problem, whether seeking individual or couple counseling, and type of payment accepted.”
The website also provides links to other resources that promote mental health, including a bureau where the public can find professionals who can speak on various mental health topics.
“One of the purposes of the Psychotherapy Association is to promote mental health in Rutherford County,” Landphair said in a press release. “All members have at least a master’s degree from an accredited program in one of a variety of mental health disciplines.”
The website was launched to help further the organization’s mission by listing more than 30 Murfreesboro therapists.
