Arthur Borko snapped this photo of the soon-to-open Dream Catchers Beauty Salon, the latest entry to debut at the otherwise bleak “Ave U Plaza” at 3102 Avenue U.
We hope we’re wrong when we say it’s not such a good spot, but the history of the plaza has not been a pretty one. Since completing construction some time in 2009, stores have opened and shuttered many times, including – but not limited to - True Perfection Kitchen & Bath Designs, Rosco’s Doggy Day Care, and It’s All About Me Now.
It looks like the only place that’s managed to stick around that strip mall is the Wine & Spirits shop. Perhaps they’re fueled by the shattered dreams of would-be small business owners…
Regardless, we sincerely do hope we’re wrong, and look forward to welcoming Dream Catchers to the neighborhood.
