As of Friday (Jan 21), still no hours posted at the new place, still has one of those key-holder combination locks which realtors use hanging on the doorknob. Window still has some kind of "Certified Canon dealer" sticker still affixed to it. An easel is set up with a cartoonish presentation of the 21 (?) points of The Way To Happiness. I wonder what kind of 'pep talks' could possibly have been given to the people who helped with the move.

Hours are now posted-- Mon-Thurs 6:30-10pm, plus Thursday mornings, 8 to noon. That's new. Maybe a last-minute stat-push for four hours? Let's see... 18 hours open per week. Barely half-time if a little extra gets tacked on for pre-opening and post-closing setup and cleanup.

(typo corrected: had said 9:30-10)

Is that 18 hours per month? (Is it only open from 9:30 pm to 10pm Monday through Thursday?!)

Now, 6:30-9:30 four nights a week, plus Thursdays 10-noon? Is that what I read on their front door the other day, next to the big (East-facing) windows so deeply tinted nobody can see how dead or desolate the inside is? Fourteen hours a week, down from eighteen?

I need to double-check.

Hours reduced again!
Tuesday 6:30-9:30, Wednesday and Thursday 5:30-9:30!
Eleven hours a week smells like a one-person hobby to me.
Google maps still lists them at their old address corner of 2nd Ave. & 9th St.

Interesting. Thanks for the report.

Gone. Shuttered. Sign down, inside empty.
I'll need to poke about to verify they've not moved elsewhere. Google lists their empty address on Central avenue and and their previous (nicer) place on 2nd. Just need to verify they didn't move back to their previous location-- highly unlikely, of course.
