A longtime music shop will close its doors this month while a downtown restaurant has a new look and name.
Loria Music announced last week that it will close after 15 years at its West Grand Avenue location. A post on the Loria Music Facebook Page on Friday afternoon explained that its lease expired and the building will be sold. “We are selling off all our inventory, tools and fixtures” over the next several weeks. “Thank you all for your support over the years. We will missed you all.”
Other retail and commercial comings and goings around downtown beyond during the second quarter of 2016 included:
- New ownership took over The Rail House restaurant on Irving Street, along with the side bar, and change the name and look. The restaurant has rebranded as The Irving Inn while the side bar is now known as The Irving Inn Social.
- The Nail Rehab and Spa took over a West Main Street space which had been vacant for a long time before being renovated and occupied last year by Acceptance Financial.
- Anya’s Intimate Apparel opened on Main Street. The storefront previously was occupied by Office Mountain and a clothing store, among others.
- The Wellness Cooperative opened on Irving Street. It offers personalized recovery and life coaching services.
- Fiesta Cancun, a Mexican restaurant, made it less than a year. It opened last August on Monroe Street but closed sometime during the last quarter.
