Local Retailer Makes Move to Seminary Street

WGIL Newsroom . Local News 195

Xanadu Women’s Fashions moved to town in November, located in Knox Square next to Great Clips and Verizon, but co-owner Ann Hicke says the traffic wasn’t really what they were looking for.

Hicke says the business was doing well, but they weren’t able to get the foot traffic the desired, and she tells WGIL moving to Seminary street was a move in the right direction.

“This was a better fit for us because we’re a specialty store, specialty retail, we have things that are unique,” says Hicke. “A lot of our clothing people don’t have in a 30 mile radius, so we’re unique.”

Xanadu opened up in the former “Go outside and Play” store next to the Calico Cat. Hicke says they wanted to be open by July 3rd so they could participate in July’s First Friday, which she’s says acted as their soft opening.
