The Sandy Springs City Council unanimously voted Dec. 16 to rename Birkenhead Drive to Sewell Drive in anticipation of Sewell Appliance’s Jan. 5 opening of its new location on Trowbridge Road. The company, which was at 6125 Roswell Road, was founded in 1962 by Charles Sewell, who with his sons, Andy and Stan, continues to run the business.
Sewell Appliance is considered to be the oldest continuing Sandy Springs business.
