Mysterious Inflatable Red Spoo... »
on July 9 at
An anonymous Slog tipper has uncovered this piece of information:
The old Rainbow Grocery is going to be a Red Balloon Company. It says so on a sign on their window.
Just what you guys need.
So instead of a nice grocery store we get to buy latex balloons. Nice.
this was posted to Seattlest early this morning. thanks though!
This isn't Seattlest. This is the fucking SLOG!
Phew! How many times have I wandered my neighborhood looking for some latex.
Thank god those days are over.
Seattlest was just trying to point out that, ironically, it's the Stranger whose panties get twisted when they are not credited for breaking a story.
Regardless. 15th needs latex balloons like it needs another coffee shop.
too bad you didn't get a nail salon instead. you can never have enough of those...
Apparently, my prayers for a shoe store have gone unanswered. Sigh.
Gee, a balloon shop. How long will that last? But I think it should be a Nail Salon or another Thai restaurant. There is a shortage of Thai in Seattle.
Red Balloon reminds me a bit of City People's. Fuck them for leaving 15th. Greedy bastards. Screw Walgreens too.
Finally! No more scavenging all over town, wasting precious hours and time looking for just the right balloon for any occasion.
i don't get it.
an entire store that sells balloons?
Can we start a petition or something. If ever there was something that is not needed on 15th it's this. I was hoping for some more food myself. A big open place like Pho Cyclo with food until 11pm would have been great.
Hell, even a PCC with a good deli. If Rainbow had the prepared food options of the Madison Market, it probably would have survived. Alas.
Could be worse. At least Red Balloon is local and they've been in business for like 27 years. Though lord knows the hill could always use another tanning salon, nail salon, pho restaurant, Thai restaurant, head shop, dollar store or skanky used clothing store.
I'm sorry -- a petition? Petition to whom? The Department of Assigning Shop Space? Seems to me if one of the things you ask for wanted to move into the space they would have leased it.
#12 asks "why a balloon store?"
maybe to serve a hidden capitol hill subculture?
Just balloons? No, no! A veritable chinucopia of cheap crap awaits you at Red Balloon. If you have a flimsy-plastic deficiency, you'll find all you need, in bulk! Grab some artificially flavored candies, some tasteless greeting cards, a box made out of crap, filled with smaller boxes of crap. Cheap!
Red Balloon may be locally and gay owned, but they don't let that prevent them from scaling the heights of banality.
