Do you believe in miracles? The Lane edition

1408 Okie Street, NE

Thanks to Theresa and all who passed on from The Lane:

“To our beloved community,

A month ago we sent you the hardest news we’ve ever had to share (and man, we’ve had some tough ones), but as always, you lifted us up and showed up big time. We were absolutely floored by all of the kind words and desires to keep The Lane open, and even more so when so many of you raised your hands to help in truly meaningful ways. Thank you!

Today, we are SO happy to tell you that two members of this community will be taking over ownership of The Lane as of March 1st.

As you all know, we poured our hearts and souls into The Lane and we wouldn’t dream of handing the keys to anyone who didn’t love and believe in Fun and Community as much as we do. Jenn and Robbyn are moms who share our passion for beautiful and creative spaces where the whole family can spend time together comfortably. They’re full of energy and ready to step up with all new kinds of fun for this community.

This will be the last note you get from us as owners of The Lane, and we’re honored to end it as it began – with a lot of excitement and anticipation for an amazing new chapter ahead. Please join us in welcoming Jenn and Robbyn & please support them in keeping this parenthood dream alive. Stay tuned for LOTS of exciting news from them.

Thank you and goodbye!
Molly and Rachel”
