Thank you for all of your positive feedback on our post concerning kids and dogs in the shop, it’s greatly appreciated! A few other issues have been brought to our attention by our neighbors concerning the increase in car and foot traffic in the area. While having so much activity in the neighborhood has definitely helped to make it safer, it has also caused concern over parking and litter.
Residents of NW 86th street east of 8th avenue are considering asking the city to implement permit-only parking due to the increase of customer parking on their block. To alleviate this problem, we ask you, our customers, to please limit your use of 86th street for parking. Try parking farther north, west of 8th avenue, or south of 85th street. A small increase in your walking distance would make a big difference to our neighbors. Also, please do not block driveways or alleys, even if you’re only parking for a few minutes!
Unfortunately, there is no way for us to add parking to our limited space and the only thing we can do is ask you to be more imaginative in your choice of parking spot. Or, don’t drive at all – walk, bus, bicycle or whatever else floats your boat!
Another issue that has arisen is that of dog poop in the area. Please clean up after your pets and refrain from leaving anything else behind during your trips to and from the shop.
Thank you again for your continued support and we’ll see you soon!
