“I don’t want to be dodgy, but even I don’t know how this one is going to turn out,” says Roger Pothus, owner of Renaissance clothing store. Renaissance widely disseminated a “moving sale” announcement–including a back-cover ad in the February Observer–but the store doesn’t yet have a destination.
Renaissance has moved several times since it opened in 1971 and has been on S. Division since 2008. “We don’t have a signed lease [for a new spot], but we’re trying to stay downtown,” Pothus says. “I can’t even give you a hint. If I had given you a hint six months ago, I would have been wrong.”
