Today is the last day Brackett & Company in Andersonville was inhabiting their petit storefront on North Clark at Balmoral. Upon arrival of the store today, we found the owners were moving all remaining merchandise out of their store and into the back of a U Haul. We were told this particular location wasn't as good of a market anymore and are moving to a storefront at Diversey Parkway at Halstead this week which was described as a "better" location.
Brackett & Company has been an occupant of the space since previous tenant, Haus, closed in 2009. They currently operate a seasonal satellite in Douglas, Michigan and is opening a third location in Saugatuk, Michigan on May 1st.
