Charleston's Goldfarb Electric showroom to be torn down

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Charleston showroom of Goldfarb Electric is set to be demolished, news outlets reported Thursday.

A demolition permit for the Virginia Street E. building was issued last week but it’s unclear when any action will be taken, officials said. A chain-link fence has been set up around the property to prepare for the demolition.

The commercial store will continue operations despite the showroom’s expected demolition.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reported that the business closed its showroom in the summer.

Goldfarb has been selling lighting and electric products in the area since 1933, according to the company’s website.
