New Vintage Store ‘Kalamazoo Pickers’ Opening June 1st Downtown
UPDATE: According to their Instagram, they'll be having their Grand Opening June 1st, from 12 p.m. until 7 p.m.
It was only about a month ago that a staple of the Vine neighborhood, J-Bird Vintage, unfortunately closed their doors for good. The vintage store had sighted not only struggles during the pandemic but also the need to spend more time with their friends and family as the reason for its closure. Regardless, it was a big blow to Vine and for those who love vintage shopping. but now it looks like we're going to have a new option in Downtown Kalamazoo. A new shop says it will be opening soon and I got to peak in and see what they're about.
Kalamazoo Pickers is located at 119 W. Kalamazoo Ave and is the first shop on the left hand side. From what I'm guessing, there will be lots of clothing, collectables, toys and more from the 80's and 90's and even farther back available. No time was given and as of now I can't seem to find any social media sites belonging to the shop, so there's really no telling when they're planning to open. But from the sight of their shop, it looks like it could be any time.
