Business Everyday Music to Move to Broadway and Pine in June
posted by April 11 at 15:30 PMon
Everyday Music is one of the few businesses still open on east side block of Broadway between Denny and John. For the past month or two, all the neighboring stores have been relocating in preparation for the light rail construction that’s supposed to start later this spring. But Everyday has stayed put mostly because they still didn’t have a place to go.
“They wanted us out at the end of March,” says the store’s manager David Miranda. “And we had been searching for a new place since November. For awhile it looked like we were all going to be out of jobs.”
But Everyday has finally found a new home—Miranda happily reports that their plan is to move into the building on the corner of Broadway and Pine, the one with the Jimi Hendrix statue in front of it.
“Our doors are going to be right behind the statue,” he says. The building is set to be developed in two years, so Everday will only be able to sign a year and a half lease, but it will buy them some more time to find a more permanent solution. “We want to stay on Capitol Hill.”
There is another downside—“Itís about half the size of the space we’re in now,” says Miranda. “So were feverishly trying to condense everything.”
Still, a smaller space is better than no space at all. They should be in the new building by June 1st.
