I’m officially bummed. Retails stores come and go on West 4th, but this one stings. Paboom, purveyor of clever kitsch, useful-AND-attractive kitchen tools and lovely home items is closing doors Dec. 30. They’re focusing the entirety of their business efforts on their other retail location in Victoria.
According to Paboom’s Facebook page, the stock (which has been 40% off since Boxing Day) is decimated. I’ve been traveling and haven’t paid them a farewell visit, so I intend to drop by tomorrow. They’re open 10am-6:00pm.
Without Paboom and U Life Accessory which closed in August, where will Kits residents find locally-curated, pretty bits and bobs. I’m stumped. What are your thoughts?
