Demolition of the former Fashion Furniture Outlet Showroom and other buildings along Blackstone Avenue at Sierra is making way for Fresno's first Hobby Lobby store. The work also marks the destruction of the scene of a crime that left an 85-year-old shoe repairman dead. George “Georgio” Sheklian was bringing a gun shop owner a coffee in December when robbers shoved him to the ground. He hit his head on the pavement and died five days later.
