The move was completed at the end of last year, but Christi says there are still Allstate Insurance customers that stop by the former downtown location looking for her.  If you're looking for your Allstate Insurance office, you'll find it -- and Christi -- in the former Durand Auto Parts building on Oak Street.  The new address of Allstate Insurance in Durand is 810 N Oak Street.

Johnson says she was leasing her former location and, separately, her husband's business, MCT, which was also located downtown, was leasing its space.  She said they both were in desparate need of more space and most other commercial locations were not suitable for their needs.

"This building wasn't the best fit either but we saw a lot of potential in the old auto parts building," she said.  Christi and Bill Johnson purchased the building in January 2017 and began gutting and renovating; "We completely tore out all plumbing, electrical, heating, cooling and lighting, for starters," she said.  "Interior concrete walls and floors had to be removed as we started building new interior walls." 

All told, she says, they finished close to 3,500 square feet for office use.  The building still offers 4,900 square feet, which she says they are giving a "much needed face lift" to, despite having no official plan yet for making use of it.  "We'd like to get it cleaned up and keep our options open for future use," she told Durand Now.

Christi invites you in to take a tour anytime.  "It was an amazing transformation and facelift for that corner."
