Design Undone

Posted By on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 12:01 PM

Plaza Design co-owner Jane Labes was at the former site of her store in Old Town Eureka this morning, supervising as the last couch and shelves were gathered up and store equipment was loaded into U-Haul vans parked outside. Some of the merchandise is being transferred to her flagship store on Arcata's Plaza, which is also slated for closure.

Labes said she was too busy to talk, and doesn't know yet when the final sales will be rung up at the remaining Plaza Design store, which has been a landmark in Arcata for years.

At the Arcata store store today, some people were "pre-shopping" to get ready for eventual markdowns, said Tracy Morgan, one of the store managers. "We're still kind of in shock," Morgan said. "We knew something was in the works, but we didn't know it was going to be so quick."

The store's departure from Eureka was "very sudden," said Charlotte McDonald, executive director of Eureka Main Street. "It came as a surprise to all of us, and a big disappointment."
