The historic Wheel & Loom building in Maldon is set for a new chapter with Portia & Co. bringing a new retail gallery to the site.

Friday 19 October 2018

The historic Wheel & Loom building on Main St in Maldon will be the new home of Portia & Co.

Tarrengower Ward Councillor Stephen Gardner said there was a lot of interest in the historic building.

“We had quite a few parties show a lot of interest in the property and it will be great to have it tenanted," said Cr Gardner.

“Portia & Co will bring a retail gallery to the main street, which will complement the variety of shopping options already in Maldon.”

Portia & Co’s Rebecca Haack said they will focus on locally sourced and sustainable art and products to feature in the store.

“Visitors to the store will see curated art and handmade design pieces, with a real emphasis on supporting all the great local talent we have in this region,” she said.

“There is no dedicated space for art in Maldon, yet we are surrounded by lots of wonderful artists, artisans and makers.”

“This building will also give us the space to arrange collaborative events such as art exhibitions,” Ms Haack said.

“We are hoping to have the store open by mid-November”.

Ms Haack and her husband Peter own the Welsh Congregational Church in Maldon, which is now luxury short-term accommodation managed by The Flophouse.

The lease arrangement is at full commercial rate.
