Applicant’s Request:
Storefront Improvement Grant in the amount of:
 $23,945 for Quench Wine & Spirits
 $15,779 for Second Street Shoppers
Project Description:
This subject property is a 2-story commercial building facing
South Second Street, in the block between Union Avenue
and Gayoso Avenue. The ground-floor contains two separate
retail bays. The Talbot Heirs Guest House, with suites
available for rental to overnight guests, is located on the
second floor above.
Second Street Shoppers, a local convenience store, currently
occupies one of the ground-floor commercial bays. Quench
Wine & Spirits, a new business venture from the owners of
City Market, has signed a lease to occupy the other groundfloor commercial bay. In the interest of enhancing the overall
appearance of the building and proposing exterior
improvements that are compatible and well-coordinated,
these two businesses are co-applicants for a Storefront
Improvement Grant.
Scope of Work:
The entire ground-floor commercial storefront will be
reconstructed using new glass, new doors, and mahogany
wood trim. A new metal canopy with built-in lighting will
Page 1 of 3
extend across both storefronts and project 3 feet out from the
building. Each business will add new exterior signage.
Quench Wine & Spirits will feature a primary projecting
sign with internal-illumination at the front of the building,
above the canopy. A second projecting sign is planned for
the alley side of the building. Simple window graphics to
identify the business will be placed on the storefront
window.
Second Street Shoppers will remove their existing awning
sign and add a new projecting sign with internal-illumination
to the front of the building, above the canopy. Window
graphics with simple stenciling will be added to the
storefront window to replace existing window signage. A
traditional sandwich board sign will also be used.

Design Review:
All exterior work and signage will require the review and
approval of both the Design Review Board (DRB) and the
Memphis Landmarks Commission (MLC).
EBO Program:
Any project that is awarded financial incentives from the
Downtown Memphis Commission shall include a best faith
effort to reach no less than 20% participation by women
and/or minority owned businesses (W/MBE) in the project's
development cost (design and construction hard costs) and
shall be compliant with the Downtown Memphis
Commission Equal Business Opportunity (EBO) Program.
20% W/MBE inclusion in this project would be
approximately $9,578 for Quench Wine & Spirits and
$6,312 for Second Street Shoppers. Documentation of
compliance with the EBO Program is a closing
requirement. If the requirements of the EBO Program
are not met, the CCDC will cancel the incentive.
Evaluation:
This matching grant program was designed to create more
attractive, inviting Downtown storefronts and building
elevations in order to improve the public realm and
pedestrian experience Downtown. A primary goal of the
Grant is to strategically target improvements in areas of
Downtown with high pedestrian traffic. For a project to be
eligible, the scope of work should be high-impact and
constitute a significant improvement to the overall public
environment. In staff’s opinion, this project meets the
program intent and eligibility requirements. The proposed
scope of work will significantly improve the appearance of
the building and enhance a well-traveled section of Second
Street near the Peabody Hotel.
Staff Recommendation:
Staff recommends approval of a Storefront
Improvement Grant for Quench Wine & Spirits in an
amount up to $23,945, based on approved receipts and
subject to all standard closing requirements.
