Since longtime Times Blvd. tenant G&G Model Shop left its storefront last August, the space has been whitened, renovated and snapped up by ArtMix Creative Learning Center — a children’s art school that relocated from 3701 W. Alabama St. earlier this year. But the model shop — located at 2522 Times for over 60 years — remains attached to the space. A G&G representative told Swamplot previously that the metal sign would follow the business over to its new spot in the strip center at the corner of 59 and Shepherd (home to a few more elderly Rice Village expats as well).
But just last Thursday, a poster on HAIF noted that address is still crowned by a temporary vinyl banner:

G&G leaving was so sad; I suppose they made a bundle but it also ended a 60 year tradition that can’t be replaced.
@Micheal I agree 100% very sad. If they did make a bundle they sure didn’t reinvest any of that in a nice sign for the new spot!
