Effective on August 20th, Virginia's Rose Consignment Shop in the Oklahoma Center on Liberty Road closed, which, coincidentally, was probably the last time I wrote a blog post.
On their Facebook page, Linda Szarko announced that they were closing, but gave no reason. I suspect that there is not a lot of traffic for consignment shops in Eldersburg, especially since there are several, including one in Eldersburg Plaza.
I went into the shop once out of curiosity and it was definitely nice. Unfortunately for them, I never needed any furniture or accessories. The LEASE signs went up very fast.
This now makes 4 available units in Oklahoma Center, considering Virginia's Rose as two units, and the former Pap-Pap's as two units. By the way, I peeked in Pap-Pap's and all of the kitchen items are now gone. Seems like the evacuation is permanent.
So this leads to the question - what do you think should replace these defunct establishments? My vote is for a Car Max. Just kidding. Perhaps this would be a good opportunity for J&Y Tokyo Market to relocate. That place is too small and they always seem busy. And their sushi is pretty good, too, regardless of what they say about Carroll County sushi.
This is Virginia's Rose after they originally opened.
Here are their for lease signs now in the windows.
