Three West Seattle business notes today:
RADIO SHACKS CLOSING: Thanks to Mike for the tip: Both West Seattle Radio Shacks now have big “CLOSING” banners out front. We stopped in the Westwood Village store (photo above) to ask for details – they say March 29th is their last day if they don’t sell everything out by then. (They couldn’t comment on whether the storefront would stay open as a Sprint store, which is happening with some RS locations co-housed with Sprint.) You might have suspected this if you’ve been following the national news about the chain’s woes.
WHAT’S GOING IN THE FORMER CASK: City permit-application files show that Kumon is seeking to open a tutoring center in the Admiral space where The Cask closed in 2014 (2350 California SW). We have an inquiry out to the company about their timeline.
EAT-PLAY-LOVE FAMILY LEARNING CENTER: This is a new business launched by local speech therapist/childhood-development specialist Tanna Neufeld, expanding her offerings “to offer a series of services for our West Seattle families.” They include playgroups, workshops, and more; her center is on the fourth floor of the Jefferson Square office building, 4700 42nd SW, Suite 447.
