After 11 years of owning BARK (5338 Ballard Ave), the owner is closing up shop.
“I have decided to close the store and take a well deserved break,” the note on the window reads. “I’m tired,” Karen, the owner tells us. “If I don’t do it now, I’ll never do it.”
Karen is keeping the name “BARK” and may use it again in the future. For now, though, she’s looking forward to taking some time off. She tells us that closer to the closing date, she’ll have sales on the remaining merchandise. Karen says that Damsalfly (5346 Ballard Ave NW) will be taking over the space. We’ll have more information on this soon.
