Gastineau Apts. get new business tenants
Fashion shop Boheme relocated to the first floor of the Gastineau Apartments this month for better exposure, owner Ann House said.
The ladies' apparel store had been in the Senate Building since May. House said the new location will open on Friday.
Boheme is the second tenant to arrive in the building this year. Nail Jazz, a manicure and pedicure boutique, opened in January.
Nail Jazz was displaced from its former location, a Front Street building that burned down in the summer of 2004. Owner Brian Lupro said business has been slow but he expects it to pick up with the addition of Boheme in the building. Lupro plans to add a room in his store for massages.
A space is still vacant on the first floor where a post office moved out a year ago.
Reception planned for state legislators
An annual welcome reception for Alaska legislators will be held Jan. 10 at Centennial Hall.
The event is sponsored by the Juneau business community, along with the Juneau Chamber of Commerce, Juneau Convention & Visitors Bureau and the city of Juneau.
The chamber is asking for businesses to donate items to be placed in gift baskets given to each lawmaker. Due to left over funds given last year, the chamber will not solicit monetary donations for the upcoming event.
The reception is scheduled from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
