BREAKING BUSINESS DISPATCH: Say thanks and goodbye G33K and welcome goodlinens on 130 Main St

G33K (‘geek’) a small business that was big in game will be closing its location in Gloucester, MA.

G33K is located in 130 Main Street between Dogtown Books and Main Street Art and Antiques. Make sure to stop by to say thanks and good luck! We were light customers–Pokémon packs and random t-shirt gifts—but always treated large. There is a store-wide closing sale on now.

When one door closes another opens. Welcome goodlinens opening July 1

Gloucester resident, business owner, designer and artisan JoAnne Chirico has been on the lookout for a ‘just right’ Main Street goodlinens headquarters for years, and boy has she found it! 130 Main Street is the one she’s been dreaming about as a retail work space, craft and creative show room. It is within an historic building and district, boasts 13 foot ceilings and has ample room for her vision and requirements. Did I mention great neighbors and the sunny side of the street?

As G33K moves out and goodlinens moves in to 130 Main Street, the space will be temporarily closed as it’s transformed in time for a July 1 soft summer launch and grand opening in September.

goodlinens new flagship store and open studio on Main Street will feature JoAnne’s handmade beautiful and functional designs along with selected hand made crafts from other artisans, local and beyond. The retail will include kitchen and housewares goods, unique and special objects, finds, and lighting. She embraces an open work studio concept in such an original and thoughtful way. This space will be a place for people making things. I expect it to be inspiring, playful, unexpected and comfortable. She has a lot in store for this store. She can’t wait to finally move boxes, case-goods and tables out of her home, her friends’ barns and other storage sites. Look for new Facebook and updates coming soon.

In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of JoAnne quickly sketching a layout with high points, and one of goodlinens videos shot by Gloucester cinematographers’ Yellow Hook Productions.

Boardgame Sunday at G33K

The G33K store on Main Street is starting a new activity: Boardgame Sundays!  The first one was held last Sunday, and the next is October 21st, 2PM – 6PM.  (They are still working out the details of how often it will be held and what days work best.) It’s a free activity, and the organizer (Greg) brings a large selection of games.  Just show up and go in towards the back of the store! I didn’t have time to stay and play this Sunday, but I hope to at a later date. A good number of players came last Sunday; there were about ten people when I left.

They are also planning to organize a regular meeting to play Pathfinder or D&D style table top.   If you are interested, you can inquire at the store.
