And the Dish ran away with the spoon. To Ballard.

January 30th, 2012 · 3 Comments

 

After 8 years in the village, Magnolia’s Dish it up is closing.  Their employees and merchandise are moving to their Ballard Ave location. Employee Linda McGillvray said the building that houses Magnolia’s Dish it up is being sold, and the store “just doesn’t have the volume to keep up with expenses.” McGillvray was quick to mention that nobody will lose their job in this consolidation.  She says they will miss Magnolia and the friends they have made here, and that they hope their Magnolia customers will “cross the bridge to shop at the Ballard Ave store”.

Dish it up’s last day in the village is February 28th.  Classes will continue at the Magnolia location until mid-February.

Dish it up’s Ballard store is located at 5320 Ballard Avenue NW

    This just sucks. Dish It Up is one of the only interesting stores in the Village. I bought a lot of Christmas gifts there this year. Love the Ballard store, too, but I’ll miss their Magnolia location. Thanks for making life a little more fun in Magnolia.

    I hate having to drive to Ballard to shop — and having to pay for parking.  Yuck.

    The classes always sounded like a good idea but I never made it to one in 10 years. Mostly, because the reception there was always cool. No eye contact or hello, ever. I have already purchased a spatuala from the Ballard store. I’m sure they’ll do better there. Men cook too.
