Alex Cooper Auctioneers has unveiled its renovated showroom at its facility on York Road in Towson. The $3 million update to the space marks another milestone in the company’s 90-year history.
Since its founding in 1924, Alex Cooper Auctioneers has concentrated its talents on the auction, real estate, appraisal and Oriental rug business. As its business continued to grow, the Cooper family continued to purchase showrooms until it unified all of its operations at its current space at 908 York Road. The current interior has not been updated since it was purchased in 1982. The renovation includes a new rug showroom and a 20,000-square-foot space for art and antiques.
“Our specialty is preserving and passing down pieces of history,” said vice president Paul Cooper. “We’re excited to unveil the renovation to our showroom, which we consider to be a milestone in our business’s history. We hope the renovation shows our commitment to the business and to the Towson community.”
