Since we seem to be in the 3rd Quarter mood, I thought I’d go ahead and upload the 3rd Quarter reports from Main Street Kent. One thing that caught my eye in reading the reports for the quarter was the loss of 2 full time and 2 part time jobs from the closing of the Kent Hardware store and the gain of 3 new full time and 41 new part time jobs with the openings of Pita Pit, Off The Wagon, Rehab Vintage Clothing, 157 Lounge, Main Street Snack Shopee, Skullz Salon and the Anu Eco Salon. I hate to see any job go away but when you add 10 times the amount of the loss with new jobs that definitely softens the blow.
The quarter started off with the tag team of the return trip of the Clydesdales to Kent, delivering beer the old fashion way, and the Heritage Festival. Both of these downtown events enjoyed spectacular weather which brought out big crowds. Big crowds and sunshine in downtown Kent kept the cash registers ringing at all the favorite watering holes.
