After a feature we brought you last week on Carytown Burgers & Fries’ petition to save their restaurant and its historic building, another tenant in the same shopping center has high-tailed it out of the Richmond Shopping Center in advance of redevelopment plans centered around a new Publix grocery store.
From Richmond BizSense:
After steeping 13 years in its current home, a Carytown tea shop is packing its bags and headed up the street as the latest retail departure from a former Martin’s-anchored shopping center that’s being eyed for a new Publix store.
Carytown Teas has signed a lease for space at 2517 W. Cary St. in Cary Street Station, a new mixed-use development in the Fan. The spot is about a mile east from the shop’s current home at 24 S. Nansemond St. in the Carytown Shopping Center, where it has operated since 2005.
Owner Patricia Guillouard said she’s moving upon learning her lease wouldn’t be renewed in her current location.
