Farewell Well Fed Head Books
You are probably aware by now of the impending move of Well Fed to the Freemont Center on Battlefield Road. KOLR10 covered the move on Thursday.
We’d barely started to get to know Mike and Beth, but from the little contact we have had, we know that we are losing good neighbors. I know from talking with Mike that he was passionate about helping downtown to revive and grow, but frustrated too at the stop/start rate of progress. At times too, it can seem like the odds are stacked against downtown traders – just now we have the combination of high gas prices and an economic downswing, coupled with Campbell Street having been a no-go zone for the past few months because of construction work.
We hope that Mike and Beth get the results they wish for in their new location. We also hope that we get another great neighbor when the new tenant arrives at the old Well Fed location. In the same vein, we’re really excited about the gallery space opening at Corner Printers, and we hear too that the empty building next to Hot Glass Studio is about to open back up. Progress downtown is always stop/start – but let’s just hope that we’re headed in the right direction in the long term.
