CLEVELAND, OH – One of the businesses that was an essential part of the beginning of Cleveland’s revitalization is closing its doors soon.
Dredger’s Union, located on East 4th St in Cleveland, will be having it’s last day on Saturday, August 18th. The store will be having a 50% off sale until the closing day.
When the store opened a little over a year ago, it recieved a ton of media attention. They were praised for being risky enough to open the store that brought trendy clothes and home goods to Cleveland residents. Danielle DeBoe and Sean Bilovecky thought with they would have success with their previous experience.
After one short year, DeBoe posted on her blog last night that the business is coming to an end. They also sent out an email to customers which said:
“It has been an amazing year for all of us at the Dredgers Union. We are proud to have been a part of the revitalization of the city which we all love. We feel fortunate to have met so many wonderful people that share in the same values and passion that the Dredgers Union was built upon. But any true “Renaissance” can take time, and time doesn’t always favor those who are at the forefront of change. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closing of the Dredgers Union.”
Although Clevelanders will be sad to see Dredger’s Union close, East 4th is still booming with business. The infamous street is always buzzing with people, has great restaurants, shops ,and entertainment.
