Another of the king cats of Broadway has left Capitol Hill. Last summer, we lost George. Now, Murray, the always there to say good evening to you cat in the window of AAA Locksmith & Security has moved along with his business to downtown Seattle.
Owner Rob Watson tells CHS that AAA has been on Broadway for 40 years. “Thanks for the first 40,” he said.
No word on what’s next for the 512 Broadway E space but we’ll keep our eyes peeled — how about a patisserie?
Watson said AAA needed a bigger space to expand its services and also is hoping that customers will find it easier to park at its new 3rd Ave place of business. Watson said many of his customers will continue with him in the new location. And, of course, Murray is coming along, too.
“We’ve always had cats. The customers love them,” Watston said. “When the first one died, customers brought us (Murray).”
But the absence will be noted — especially on a quiet weeknight. Sometimes, it was just you, Broadway and Murray. Now it’s just you and Broadway. You’ll have to figure it all out on your own.
