With the growth of Medical Center Parkway, two local businessmen have decided to follow suit.
“Everything seems to be heading in that direction, and we just want to be a part of the growth,” said Brian Coleman, a financial advisor at Edward Jones.
He shares the office with his father-in-law Earl Hull, who has spent some 37 years in three different buildings on Spring Street. The duo will transition its office to 1608 Williams Drive, Suite 100, off Medical Center Parkway, with plans to open for business on Jan. 30.
“Our goal is to focus on doctors,” Coleman added.
Newcomer Jessica Wheeler will take over the current Edward Jones office in downtown Murfreesboro as a financial advisor.
“She is going to take the responsibility of some of our accounts and stay in this office as her own branch,” Coleman explained.
While he and Hull are moving to the new space in the coming weeks, they will continue to be available at 615-890-5122, even after the move.
For the past three years, Patrick Clark has been the go-to guy for broken iPhone, iPad and Macintosh computers.
He initially opened his repair shop at the corner of South Church Street and Indian Park Drive under the name Mac Medic Pro but later changed it to The ‘Boro Mac Shop.
Business has been going well, Clark said, prompting him to search for a bigger, more visible location.
He said plans have all fallen into place, and The ‘Boro Mac Shop will relocate to its new home Feb. 6 near the intersection of Middle Tennessee Boulevard and Park Avenue.
“About a year and a half ago, business got steady, and then it really got steady, and now I’ve just outgrown this space,” Clark said, adding that the main reason for his success can be attributed to the iPad. “People drop them and crack the screen.”

Local residents looking to spruce up their home furnishings now have another option in Murfreesboro.
American Furniture Outlet has opened in the former Haverty’s building on River Rock Boulevard to offer “great prices – that’s the name of the game,” said owner Joe Cottrell.
“What we like to do is save people money, and that’s what we do, and we do a good job at it,” he said.
He explained how the company purchases overstock items at a discount and passes those savings on to the customer.
From mattresses and bedroom sets to sofas and dinettes, American Furniture Outlet offers a variety of options.
“It seems like a lot of people are shopping outside of the Murfreesboro area for home furnishings, and we wanted to bring that here to save people money and offer good values,” Cottrell continued. “This is especially true for mattresses. Our goal is to save customers at least $200, if not more.”
