Boo Radley’s is moving.
After almost four years at 5 N. Post, the eclectic purveyor of such items as lava lamps, gargoyle statues and punching nun dolls is spreading out.
“I’m really excited to see where this next evolution goes,” said Andy Dinnison, who owns the store with his wife, Kris. “It’s more than doubling our size.”
The new store will open on the corner of Spokane Falls Boulevard and Howard in late January or early February.
Boo Radley’s will increase in size from 1,200 square feet to 1,700 square feet. The new location also has 1,500 square feet for storage and offices. The store’s three picture windows will face Riverfront Park’s carrousel.
Though he needed more space, Dinnison said his decision also reflects an uncertainty about the future of downtown. With redevelopment projects such as River Park Square and the Davenport Hotel years away, he chose to be across from downtown’s one constant attraction - the park.
“There’s a lot of pluses for downtown right now, but a lot of those pluses are three to four years away,” he said. “I’ve got to think about right now.” , DataTimes
