Last weekend we helped my friend Raphael move everything out of her shop in Sugarhouse, Free Speech Zone, to her new location closer to uptown Salt Lake. The new shop will not be open for a couple of months while we work to get the property into compliance with current commercial zoning laws.
It was sad to be taking down all the stuff from the walls and having to tell folks that stopped by about the closing. The entire block is nearly all boarded up now in preparation for the building’s demolition and gentrification of the area. All of the locally owned businesses were displaced due to this.
Nonetheless, FSZ is moving forward and will open when the building is approved for business. The new address will be
411 South 800 East.
