West Seattle business notes: 3 quick update, from coffee to cars

COFFEE AT THE HEIGHTS: An e-mail inquiry reminded us we hadn’t checked on this in-the-works coffee shop (next to the laundromat at 35th/Webster) since this update last fall. So we asked the proprietors of PB&J Textiles, who are putting in the shop (and also operate the laundromat). After slowing the project down for a while, they say, it’s about to rev up again, with electrical work next week and cabinets after that – so opening day shouldn’t be TOO far away.

AND ACROSS THE STREET … from where Coffee at the Heights is brewing, county records confirm a recent tip we got that the former Carosello Coffee space (which had many names before it closed more than a year ago) at 7350 35th SW finally has been sold. Multiple sources say a salon is going in. The new owner has the same name as the operator of a salon on Delridge; we’re checking both locations for a link (although someone may beat us to confirmation while we’re out driving around!).

WEST SEATTLE MOTORS DRIVES INTO THE SUNSET: Thanks to Lora at Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor) for pointing out that the sign on this Triangle business along Fauntleroy Way has switched its blazing-red scrolling message from “Liquidation Sale” to “Gone Out of Business.” This was West Seattle’s last remaining car-sales business; we reported in May 2007 about its name change from Bob Ochsner Cars.

    Fortunately we still have the used car sales strip up Admiral!

    We purchased two cars from there over the last year with the “newer” manager Heather. She was WONDERFUL. Though when we made our last purchase in August of 08′ with her she let on that she was leaving after being there for a year, because the owner was less than forthcoming in his business practice. So as she said they would probably close up shop shortly after her departure. It only took 4 months! Like the other blogger stated , at least we have Admiral…lol!

    Sigh. A salon. Sigh. I get that these are needed neighborhood businesses, but so are delis and cafes and markets and.

    Double sigh. A salon.

    “Multiple sources say a salon is going in.”

    Of course. Apparently the only kind of business allowed anymore. What a waste.

Sorry, comment time is over.
