Openings and Closings Downtown Bend

Four new businesses that I'm aware of; though I don't know the name of two of them, so have just given them the generic name until I learn the real names.

With the addition of The Good Drop, there are now three wine shops on my street.
Across the way, where Ivy Rose Manor was, there looks to be a Doggie Business going in. Where Luxe Home Interiors was, it looks like a.....you guessed it....a furniture store is going in. And I caught a blog this morning about Cowgirls Cash opening on Brooks. Anyone know any others?

Downtown continues to show impressive rental strength, though the need for rentals shows an underlying weakness, obviously. In the building across the street, 4 out of the 7 stores have been there less than a year, most of them less than six months.

Three wine shops on itty-bitty Minnesota? What are the other two?

BD,

Notice I was careful to say "street", not block.

There is one wine store per block on my three block street. Volcano Wine has opened across the street from me.

And there is the wine shop across the alley from Thump coffee -- I'm embarrassed that I don't know the name...I just thought of it as 'The Wine Shop.'
