Discover Bicycles will move, probably in November

12 Aug

A recent fixture at the corner of Oak and Second, Discover Bicycles and newish owners Kurt and Ali Buddendeck have abandoned hope of renegotiating their lease and will pull up stakes this fall.

The new location? The former home of Plush, the old Van Meter furniture building at State and Third streets. Buddendeck has had it under lease for awhile, and considered subletting it if he could get better terms where he is. Apparently not to happen.

That leaves some big gaps on Oak Street. Plush, as you may know, is shutting down later this summer — the ads in the paper confirm what the rumors have said for awhile. And North Cheatham is still looking for tenants — two at the ground level — for the space once occupied by former partner Carrie Nelson’s Annz Panz.

And lest we forget, Doug’s is for sale. Tell me the recession isn’t putting the hammer down.
