As many of our regular customers already know, Earth Lore is going to be closing its Livonia location on May 31st, 2011 and moving the inventory to our larger Plymouth location. We have spent 14 wonderful and successful years serving the community there, and the business has finally outgrown our first tiny shop to the extent that we feel the time is right to make this change.
In 2003, we opened our much larger Plymouth location with the intention of moving the entire business there. Instead, we found ourselves with two full-scale shops that were each successful in their own right. While we couldn’t be happier about the community support that made this happen, Earth Lore is still a very small business with a very small staff, and is more suited to one location than two.
Now, eight years later, we are finishing the move we began when we opened Earth Lore Plymouth. We chose downtown Plymouth for several reasons: better parking, a thriving downtown full of other small shops and restaurants, a MUCH bigger space (4 times the size of the Livonia store!), local festivals, etc. It’s a vibrant, beautiful downtown area and complements Earth Lore nicely.
Most of all, we chose Plymouth for its proximity to Livonia – less than 10 miles from our Livonia shop! In changing our location, we wanted to do our best not to lose the customers that make the store possible to begin with. We know that moving the store at all is inconvenient to some folks, but promise that the Plymouth store is well worth the short extra trip!
On behalf of all of us here at Earth Lore, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making these stores possible. It is your interest and support that not only allows us to be in this most unusual of businesses, but also for making the journey worth the while.
