aaRaa: the latest in the Washington Street exodus

Home furnishings and decorating store aaRaa – is moving over to “Midtown West” (408 6th Street) for 2011. Their shop on Washington Street will stay open until New Year’s Eve – December 31st.

What do you think led to this decision? How will business be for a shop like this in a more residential area?

They’re renovating. Save on a lot of stuff now before they shut down.

They’re pretty much empty, with the exception of some furniture.

We also vote with our dollars. If you want to see local merchants don’t spend you $$ with the national chains or foreign investors. I hope to see the local markets and restaurants stay strong.

The number of vacant store-fronts on Washington Street is disheartening. 3 or 4 years ago the story was skyrocketing rents. Now it’s likely that combined with the economy that forces out established businesses. Landlords need to be realistic and cut rents.

An honest/passionate staff, unique products, and reasonable prices are hard to find these days. I discovered aaRaa a few months ago and have had such a pleasant experience in this shop that I felt the need to share with the community.

aaRaa is more of an accessory store than a home furnishing store (even though the home décor is really cute too). I was impressed with the warm staff and distinctive items. The owner has great taste and it shows in the accessories that are on display. Every time I go in that store there are new pieces!! A great place to find that “something different” you are looking for.

The service and atmosphere at aaRaa is very refreshing and I look forward to shopping there in the future.

Wow, they must really be selling everything… the first letter A in their sign is gone in the top picture but present in the second pic. Can you find out how much for the rest of the letters?
