There’s a big, ugly “For Lease” sign (bitter landlord?) in the window of Design Within Reach in Uptown. The modern furniture store is leaving its Hennepin Avenue space at the end of January, but DWR is not leaving town. A store manager tells me the company is currently looking for a new Twin Cities location—possibly in Edina, closer to other furniture stores and convenient parking. That said, there’s a push to keep them in Uptown, too.
Meanwhile, a floor sample sale begins in December. 2939 Hennepin Ave. S., Mpls.
