Good Breed – Doomed

6/18/2009 Update:

This spot is doomed!

I’m telling you – I’m keeping this picture below on hand as the permanent stock photo for this location. The FOURTH business in less than three years to close up shop on the southwest corner of 14th and Bloomfield is Good Breed. About six months in, and brown paper on the windows again.

What business would succeed at this teeny-tiny spot?

I stopped into the latest store to take over the very doomed corner of 14th and Bloomfield this week: Good Breed.


What is Good Breed?

As many of you know, this location has been home to a few failed business already in the past three years: My Urban Auctioneer (eBay store), Santa Fe Touch (Jewelry – I thought that was a good store), and the “Life” clothing store.

Now the nondescript corner spot has a couple clothing items inside. I thought it was “still in progress,” but it’s certainly open for business. I spoke with Dennis, one of the owners for a few seconds this week. I asked what would describe their clothing line. “Classic” was the answer given. He seemed like a really nice guy, but I was wondering if any more decorations or additions were going to be made, and it didn’t appear that way. I asked how much a basic men’s button down shirt was: “$100.” There were a few accessories and a ladies item or two as well.

The website is and is still under construction.

Walked by last night. I’m not sure if the clothes are nice or not because nothing drew me inside. So I kept walking. :roll:

The Ebay Store is gone? I always meant to go in there….oh well.

NO WAY this store will last. clothing stores with $100 shirts don’t survive on Washington Street where the foot traffic is +5000%.

I used to live right next door to this location and I can tell you it is a pretty dead corner. Not much foot-traffic. Don’t see this place doing well.

Nothing survives on Washington St. either. I was shocked walking down Washington yesterday at the number of empty storefronts. It seems the only way to make it in this town is to either own the building (and thus pay no rent and make money off the renters) or be a chain store.

I’m gonna post this again-the old empire fitness gym would be a GREAT location for a CVS or other chain drugstore…
beause aside from the 9th street (forget the cross street)CVS which always seems desolate, people who live between the CVS on 1st or the CVS at 14th have to go so far for a pharmacy…
that block is so dead lately-the street lamps and christmas lights are out most of the time…
all the other little businesses along washington don’t seem to stay open for very long…
