Springfield commercial real estate firm Garrison Group Inc. is moving to a new location on south Fifth Street.

Currently located in the Centrum Building at 319 E. Madison St., the company is in the process of moving to 739 S. Fifth St., which Garrison Group CEO Glen Garrison recently purchased.

Garrison said his company’s furniture is being moved in now, and he hopes the new office will be operational by Friday. He says Garrison Group first moved downtown a few years ago.

“We moved downtown to see how we’d like it,” he said. “It has worked extremely well, because you can start in the middle and go out in all directions.”

The current move is an opportunity to own his office space rather than lease it, Garrison said.

“We found a spot to own that’s close to downtown and still has parking,” he said. “We think it’s going to work out really well.”
