Fanfare Tickets owner Renny Harrison has mulled a move to the Carmel Arts & Design District for awhile.
When the time came to renew his lease at 890 E. 116th St., he decided the time was now to see what was out there.
“We came upon this spot and loved it,” Harrison said.
The ticket buying and reselling business was scheduled to open Jan. 13 at 324 W. Main St.
“We think the increased foot traffic will be really good for our business,” Harrison said. “We had been in the same spot for 10 years, and we thought getting in front of a different group of people would be good for us. We really like all the growth we see downtown, and we thought we would like to be part of that. We think being in the center of Carmel will be great for business.”
Harrison said the new space is the same size as the old one, at approximately more than 2,000 square feet.
Harrison previously owned another ticket business he sold 10 years ago and started Fanfare.
“The key to our success has been extraordinary customer service,” Harrison said. “We are always there for our customers. I think that’s what separates us. We answer every phone call. We’re really customer-service oriented. When you are buying tickets to see your favorite concert or favorite basketball team, that’s something you want to be right. You want the experience to be perfect. I think we do a great job with that. We help with making the experience good from the time you reach out to buy all the way until you are at the game. We help with hospitality, tickets and parking. The whole package is what we are good at.”
