Local business leaving Ballard

Posted by Geeky Swedes on March 29th, 2011

Asher Anson, the retail clothing store on Market St., closed up shop this last weekend and is moving to Kirkland. “Asher Anson is moving to our new shop in Kirkland in April. Unfortunately, this means goodbye to our Ballard location. We will miss Ballard but we hope this isn’t goodbye to you. You have made our experience here so enjoyable. A BIG THANK YOU,” they write on their website. Along with the location change, the name of the shop will now be ASHER, focusing exclusively on men’s clothing and goods. (Thank you David for the tip!)

    Like no one saw that coming.

    Not surprised to see this store move to the Eastside; more money for overpriced clothes over there.

    How can they be overpriced if some people can afford them?

  • 4 Guest // Mar 30, 2011 at 3:33 am

    Maybe they weren’t overpriced, maybe you are underfunded?

    Not enough of the “some people” live in the Ballard area to sustain them.

    Plus most Ballardites idea of dressing up is jeans, a $5 hoodie and sneakers.

    Yeah, right. I simply can’t justify paying $200 for a pair of jeans, but you go right ahead. I’m sure Asher will be glad for your business, but I’m guessing you didn’t shop there either.

    Where do you get your hoodies?! I want one. Mine cost at least $10.

    Goodwill: where Ballard goes for style.

    I’ve bought stuff there and know plenty of people who shop there. I am disappointed that they’re leaving.

    I shopped there and they weren’t over priced.

    Excellent, a great location for a pub! Ballard CLEARLY needs more bars.
