– The City Grill restaurant on Cornwall Avenue (near Kids Northwest) has closed. A note on the door notes that a Chinese restaurant will be taking over that location. The new restaurant will focus on foods from Northeastern China, according to the note.
– Across the street on Cornwall, a flower and gift store called Life’s a Party has also closed.
– The Time in Play Cafe on E. Holly St. (near the YMCA) has also closed. Here’s a note posted from the cafe’s Facebook page:
Its official folks. Time In Play Cafe has closed our doors. We’d planned to be open today, but have run out of coffee and frankly, stamina: its been hard to say goodbye over and over again, my staff and I, as are many of you, pretty broken hearted. Its been a wonderful journey and getting to see so much joy in Bellingham’s children and families and parents coming together means that Time In has truly been a success. . My hope is that this is more a sabbatical than closure and that someone(s) will find the means by which to bring this beautiful space to its full potential as a community center and hub. Love you all and thank you so much for your love and support. xo
