Unique Retailer Haymaker Closing


Local Makers at Haymaker

Since June 1, 2011, Haymaker has been an area gem by offering amazing locally made goods to the community. Located at 5507 North Clark, Haymaker, though financially secure according to their Facebook page, could not continue with current market changes and a big 40% increase in rent. They also were only offered a 1 year extension on their lease due to a possible property sale.

Through the past 2.5 years, they have offered a unique shopping destination that has thrived on word of moth and referrals. But Haymaker’s may not be over just yet. In a statement issued by owner, Arrin Williams,

“This mission, this store — they have long been dreams of mine, so it is not something I am letting go of just yet.  But it is time to move on to the next stage, whatever that may be. Of course I will be updating everyone with regards to that in the coming weeks + months, as well as updating clearance event details and how we are celebrating along the way!”

The local seller, buyer and producer has long given this neighborhood part of its charm. Haymaker will be missed.
