and thank you for your interest! This is Steve, the
Livingscape grew out of a non-profit called Livable
Place, and opened its doors 12 years ago! Hard to
We've had a great run thanks to outstanding staff
and wonderful customers (you are truly the best -
thoughtful, engaged, warm and friendly). Whenever
I had a bad day, it took only a brief time at the
store to feel better about life and humanity. So thank
you so very much!
Yet at this stage of my life, there are other things
to do. My hope is to find someone with a passion for
people, plants and retail who wants to make it their
own and run with it. We will do all that we can to
set this person up for success.
We've operated with a quasi-coop model and have over
1,000 members. I believe Livingscape serves an important
community function and I would like to see it continue.
The asking price will be the sum of inventory and
equipment, plus a factor for revenue generation. This
will likely be around $100K, +/- $50K (numbers still
being crunched), and is negotiable. In an ideal scenario,
the new owner will come on board sooner than later
and work with existing staff through the winter and
spring for a smooth transition.
The business is financially sound and has weathered
the reduction in visability, foot traffic and parking
caused by adjacent construction. This construction
will soon end, thankfully, and the influx of new neighbors
will undoubtedly increase business.
VISION FOR LOCATION.
The two neighboring apartment complexes will bring
300 potential customers to the edge of the property.
Thus, it makes sense to convert the property to mixed-use,
and I see Livingscape being one of those uses.
There are three floors in the main house and a substantial
outbuilding. There could be different businesses in
For example, in addition to Livingscape, there could
be a coffee shop, hair salon, office space, and a
few foot carts scattered about ... creating a vibrant
place with complementary businesses. In addition,
a flat roof could be put on the outbuilding to accommodate
a grow house. In addition to three parking spaces
out front, there are 6 alley spaces.
