  • BUSINESS BEAT: Evergreen North businesses in a big shuffle

    Several businesses in Evergreen North will be playing musical chairs in the next several months.

    The Evergreen Christian Outreach furniture resale shop will move into space that became vacant when the Kitchen and Bath Design Center closed. As EChO remodels the space and moves there incrementally, Artful Journey and Shipping Depot will move into the front of the former furniture shop. The entire move should be done by May.

    It may sound a bit confusing, but it makes complete sense to the businesses.

Nordstrom stores are selling the product and teaching Sloan’s process during shoe-tying classes in its stores nationwide, and the devices are available at Twigs in downtown Evergreen and HearthFire Books and Treats in Bergen Park.

    All of these are possible at Evergreen’s American 3D Printing.
