We’re excited to announce that City People’s may be able to remain in their location for 11 more months!

Our community was very sad to learn that City People’s Garden Store, a longtime retailer in the neighborhood, was going to have to close at the end of 2016 due to a redevelopment project. First, they were looking for a new location, then, revised designs of the redevelopment project were released. A couple of months ago, there was serious concern about the developer’s plans being inadequate from an eco-conscious perspective.

The store announced via their Facebook page last Friday that, “future City People’s Garden Store owners, Alison Greene and Jose Gonzales, are in negotiations for an 11-month lease to remain at our current location through 2017. The redevelopment project at the site has been delayed, providing this opportunity. The agreement is in the works with the property owners and developers, and they are hopeful this will go through. Their goal is for the store to reopen in February, with many of its current employees, business as usual — as they continue their effort in finding a more permanent site.”

The store would complete the holiday season and then close for January, then reopen in February for 11 more months in their longtime Madison Valley location.
