Growing pains: Tacoma’s resurgent downtown forcing some businesses out
TACOMA, Wash. -- Seven years ago, Jason Brinar fell in love. "When I came to 'Antique Row,' I kind of fell in love with this area," Brinar says. He fell hard -- for Tacoma, and this neighborhood in particular. He opened his business, a second-hand-store called Brandy’s Attic on Broadway. It’s included in a three-block stretch of folksy small businesses, a neighborhood called Antique Row.
