A popular Bend retailer on Newport Avenue is expanding and moving to the Old Mill District. Ginger's Kitchenware will be opening soon in the store that previously housed Allyson's Kitchen. Old Mill District spokesperson Noelle Fredland says this is a growth story for Ginger's: “In some capacity 'yes'; they need to expand, they've had some beautiful cooking classes, but they've had to do them off-site until now. So being able to have that beautiful cast kitchen on the 2nd floor mezzanine will allow them to actually have their cooking classes right there in the store." They expect to move into the new space in June and Fredland says their co-tenant will most likely be a restaurant. Allyson's Kitchen closed recently so that the business owner could focus on the main store in Ashland, Oregon.
