After 22 years in our King street location, we are re-locating to greener pastures in downtown Northampton. Anyone who has moved from a house to an apartment understands the daunting task of downsizing, which is much worse than moving what remains.
Over the past two months we have cleared out a lot of ‘ stuff ‘ to the local library, food pantry, hospice shop, the free pile in the parking lot, and our best new friend, the dumpster. We can say for sure that the more space one has to fill, the more filled it becomes.
Our new store is smaller, bright and modern – not slick, but sharp. We will be lean and mean and as shiny as a new dime.
Our new neighborhood is busier, with more foot-traffic and less car/truck traffic. A lovely patio in front of our new store has trees and benches for ‘settin and the NOHO bike path scoots by right by the front door. An oasis in the heart of a thriving small city. Parking is easy in the city parking lot across the way.
And, we are only a straight-down-the road 3-minute walk from our former location.
We have many exciting new 2012 teas which are not yet available in the store or on our website. And new posts to write. As soon as we are settled and up and running you will be hearing a lot from us.
Come visit us in our new location as of June 5th. Classes will begin again later in the summer – check http://www.teatrekker.com for announcements and dates. And if you are just finding our about our move here and now, you had better sign up for our monthly newsletter, too!
As of June 5th:
2 Gleason Plaza ( Railroad Avenue )
Northampton, MA 01060
413-584-5116 (same phone number)
We’re just a quick walk from the Main /King / Pleasant Streets intersection in the heart of downtown Northampton. Remember to walk or drive south on Pleasant St instead of north on King St at the intersection.Tea Trekker is now conveniently located on the south-side of the large brick building that houses Don Gleason’s Campers‘ Supply, Deals & Steals and the District Attorney’s Office. We face Yes Computers across the parking lot.
