Never Felt Better Vegan Shop to close
Never Felt Better Vegan shop will shut its doors Thursday, ending a nearly seven-month run at its 19th and P streets location.
“We’re going to go ahead and close down,” co-owner Jen Fosnight said Wednesday. “To be honest, we’ve been struggling to pay – it’s a great deal, and it’s not too much rent – but business has just been slow.”
The shop focused on vegan retail items such as clothing, non-leather wallets, art produced by vegans and soaps, and also carried some food.
“We’ve tried a bunch of things, but it was either lose this or lose the house,” Fosnight said. She added that the products will still be available online at the Never Felt Better Vegan Shop website.
Vegan options at numerous restaurants in the area are growing, Fosnight said, adding that if the business had just sold vegan food, it probably would have succeeded.
In the future, she added, the business might relocate in the East Bay.
The business will be open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Thursday for its final day of business.
