Maxine’s is latest Maple Leaf storefront to close

September 26th, 2016 by Mike

Maxine’s Floral Design, in business since 1983, is the latest Maple Leaf business to shut its doors.

Although the retail store at 8811 Roosevelt Way N.E. will close this week, the business will remain open online and with the same phone number, (206) 523-4200, an employee said.

There is some possibility of a restaurant opening there.

That block of Roosevelt is seeing a lot of change.

Across the street, Wild Root Salon closed in early summer (and is apparently being replaced by a private business) and the Maple Leaf Pharmacy closed last October (it’s being replaced by The Little Gym).

In previous years, on the same block, Between Cultures gallery closed, as did Snow Goose gallery.
