Closings and Openings
The Short North Insider
Sadly, retail and galleries still seem to be moving or closing in the Short North.
Art Impressions at 714 N. High St. is closing, as is Cowtown Art at 668 N. High St. This added to the list of Curio A Go Go failing at it’s second location and Friday the 13th next to Little Brothers recently closing, although you can still get some of their items from Joel Treadway’s Cringe shop online.
Although, a little farther up the street at 1116 N. High St., What The Rock?! is taking a stab at a variety of different items based on musicians. Europia is now a full fledged state liquor store, while a Vino 100, a chain wine store, opened at 789 N. High St. Two new shoe stores, Shoe Classics at 765 N. High St., and Little Shop of Shoes at 664 N. High adds to the other shoe store, Legs Diamond already in the area. The Lamp Shade at 990 N. High St. also opened recently.
Next to the Shoe Classics spot is a Segway store, although I personally enjoy walking in the Short North, so I doubt they will be getting any business from me.
