I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye...
I was very sad to learn today that Underhills, one of our favorite furniture stores, is closing all of their locations after 62 years of business.
Our old apartment was just down the street from the Redmond location of Underhills, and we often popped in there to daydream about what we'd buy when we had the money. The sales people were friendly and never pushy, and we'll never forget one in particular - Barb. She was the sales lady from whom we purchased our first major piece of furniture (the armoire in our living room), and she made the whole process very enjoyable. She even continued to remember us each time we came in for a look around.
For any of your local Seattlites, they are having a store wide liquidation sale with savings of up to 70% or more at all 4 of their locations this weekend, and they are also offering no sales tax and 12 months same as cash. We're going to check it out for sure.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu...and don't forget to support local businesses!
