Third Avenue Commercial strip set to see more change in October

The fall is shaping up to be a month of closings and openings for the Third Avenue shopping area, with two more stores putting up the Going out of business signs along the 300 block, with the prospect of a few new businesses in the process of arriving on the scene.

Kix's shoes and 3 C Clothing recently started the process of wrapping up their operations on Third Avenue, the latest of commercial outlets that have decided to call it quits on the main shopping street in the city.

They follow Rainforest Books up the block, which closed its operations over the summer, a potential
sale to keep a book store in operation in that location seeming to fall through in recent months.

However, the Rainforest  location may not be empty for long. As it appears that someone is  preparing to open that location up with a new business opportunity.

The early indications seemi to suggest that it will either be a collectible shop for a range of items, or a second hand or thrift shop kind of business.

Details for what may be ahead have yet to be revealed, while work continues inside the doors and behind the mysterious brown paper.

That new location, will join the Little Anchors consignment shop on that same block, the most recent  addition to that stretch of our downtown shopping area opened its doors earlier this year in March.
