Archive for March, 2009
With the first quarter coming to an end, here’s an update on the Whatcom County businesses that have either announced they are closing or have already shut down in 2009. There are no official closure listings; this is something I compile on my own.
I have 25 closures, putting us on pace for 100. Last year’s total was 83, while the 2007 total was 35. In an upcoming post I’ll compile business openings of the first quarter.
Here’s the list. If there are closures I’ve missed or have wrong information, please let me know:
Le Rendez Vous Gift Art, Del’s Feed & Farm Supply, Play it Again Sports, Gamma’s Sports Cards, Emerald Bay Events, United Auto Electric, Kowloon Garden, Circut City, The Workshop, Instant Replays, BB Lumber, Daiso Japan, Greene’s Corner, Cameo Shoes, True Blue Boutique, Results Bellingham, Sir Rats, UPS Warehouse (Blaine), Select Comfort, Horizon Bank’s Alabama branch, Uncle’s Games, Carquest (Bellingham), Yak Magic, Boater’s World and Chispa.
I’m back from a trip to Southern California (unfortunately it was probably the one time of year when it was cold and rainy) so here are local biz items I’ve noticed while catching up:
– Supon’s Thai Food is opening on April 1 on 111 N. Samish, in the strip mall near Subway.
– The Dairy Queen on Iowa Street has put in a building permit application for a $75,000 remodel.
– Delia’s, a clothing store for teen girls, is coming to Bellis Fair. They’ve applied for a permit remodel. The remodel is valued at $175,000.
