A longtime Highland Park business, the Bootery, will move next month from its Central Avenue location on the south side of the street to the former In the Raw space almost directly across the roadway.
The Bootery, which has been open in Highland Park for 35 years, has operated at 492 Central Avenue for the last 20 of them, according to owner Roger Wolff. “We won’t need a truck,” he said. “We’ll just walk everything across the street.”
For now, Wolff is looking for moving help from his customers. He hopes they will be buying a lot of the current inventory. “We’re having a moving sale,” he said. “We’ll even be selling some fixtures.”
Who will occupy the current space? “We’re looking for a tenant,” property owner Mitch Cobey said. Jonathan Plotkin (847-343-2204) of Endurance Retail Partners is handling the leasing for Cobey.
In the Raw has been closed since October.
