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.

A second art gallery closes on Roosevelt Way N.E.

Briana emails:

Joy Carter, owner of Between Cultures, requested that I forward this letter on to the Maple Leaf community.

Unfortunately Joy and Bob needed to close their delightful gallery on Northeast 88th Street  and Roosevelt Way Northeast to take care of Bob (Elam) after four months in the hospital.

Also, I’d appreciate it if someone can direct me to the folks of the Maple Leaf Newsletter, as that was where Joy had mentioned.

Thank you.

The Maple Leaf newsletter of the Maple Leaf Community Council can be reached here.

Between Cultures is the second gallery to close on that block of Roosevelt Way Northeast. The Snow Goose Gallery closed in February 2014.

Interestingly, the Snow Goose Facebook page became active again last month.
