Final sale for Eagle Rock eco-retailer. Is your favorite boho boutique next?

The ups-and-downs of Eagle Rock eco-retailer Kelly Witmer have been chronicled every where from The Eastsider to the New York Times as an example of the economic pressures facing boho business owners in gentrifying neighborhoods. After putting out an S.O.S. last year that her Colorado Boulevard store Regeneration was about to close, it looked like Witmer found a way to stay in business by sharing the space and rent with another business. But that cost-saving move was apparently not enough and now Witmer is closing shop and selling her stock:

“The building was sold, the lease is up, and we’re being evicted. I’m not sure when the last day will be – probably when it’s all gone! That could be as soon as next week.”

If that’s not bad enough, Witmer has to find a temporary Summer home for her shop dog, Shaft.
