Children’s clothing boutique Flora and Henri has announced it is closing its E Pine shop next week after two years in the space. The upscale shop opened next to Molly Moon’s in September 2009 after closing their downtown Seattle location earlier that year.
According to the statement on the closure, Jane Hendreen will continue to operate florahenri.com and plans to open office and studio space to customers by appointment.
The Odd Fellows building is also home to eco-friendly retailer Nube Green and shares a block with retailers Fleet Feet and the Everyday Music and Elliott Bay Book Co. complex. Elliott Bay’s move to the neighborhood has been touted as a success by the store’s management and was seen by many as an opportunity to establish a retail anchor for the Pike/Pine neighborhood. Last summer, CHS reported that retailer Totokaelo would be replacing Everyday Music in its current location by this spring. Everyday Music is currently working out plans for a move to a new location in the neighborhood.
No word at this point if anything is lined up for the Flora and Henri space.
Here is the announcement from Flora and Henri.
