Some Greenwood-Phinney business updates to tell you about:
Stretch and Staple is moving into the former Art on the Ridge space at 8005 Greenwood Ave. N. Stretch and Staple features the fine art photography of local photographer Taylor McAtee, and custom canvas printing.
Terra Bella Flowers is moving from 8417 Greenwood Ave. N., to the corner of 74th and Greenwood, next to Metropolis. Owner Melissa Feveyear tells us she’ll be moving the weekend after Valentine’s Day, with a soft opening in early March, and a Grand Opening and 10-year anniversary party in April.
Feveyear says she’s moving 10 blocks south in part because most of her customer base is in that area, and the corner lot will give her more visibility.
Greenwood Hardware has finished the exterior remodeling of its store at 7201 Greenwood Ave. N., removing the old blue siding and exposing the original brick.
The contractor is still working on the inside, and they’ll soon demolish the sheds on the north side. During that demolition, the parking lot will be closed and most of the lawn and garden stock will be in a trailer out front. The store will remain open during construction.
Greenwood resident Karim Lessard is one of the co-founders of a startup called Knoq, a website that helps neighbors connect for product and service referrals. Knoq started on Queen Anne but has recently expanded service to Greenwood and Phinney Ridge. Lessard tells me the site has a little more than 1,000 users so far.
