On her Facebook page last night, Virtu owner Julie Horowitz Jackson wrote: "I've officially posted our retail space for those who might be interested. Feel free to share this along." So, we're sharing.
Horowitz Jackson linked to this Craigslist ad, which promotes a 660-sqaure-foot retail space in Bucktown (that'd be the current Virtu.) Rent is less than $2,000 a month, and the space would be suited to a small boutique, an art gallery, or a studio. Bonus: the landlord is described as "fair and outstanding."
As for Virtu, the store is vacating its space in order to "grow our business into a larger one." Stay tuned for details on that, and heads up: the fair and outstanding landlord would like to see established business plans from those who inquire about the space.
