As GM reported back in March, the longtime craft retailer, Appalachian Spring, would close at the end of its lease. At the time there was some question as to when exactly the store would vacate. But now the store is announcing that it will open for the last time June 24th.
This is a sad loss for the neighborhood. Appalachian Spring has been here for almost fifty years. There are only a handful of stores or restaurants with a longer tenure. And given the nature of their departure (a dramatic hike in rent) it seems unlikely we’ll see the space occupied by any retailer half as interesting as Appalachian Spring.
So make sure to stop by before the end of June 25th to pick up one last gift and say goodbye.
