CARAG — Another Calhoun Square tenant is out after being asked to leave, according to Kumar, the co-owner of Geetanjoli Sari Fashion. Kumar said he is thankful the store has already landed on its feet in a new site on Hennepin Avenue.
“We were very happy [at Calhoun Square], and we don’t have any complaints,” Kumar said. “It’s their place, and they decided they don’t want us.”
Geetanjoli now operates at 2817 Hennepin Ave. S., where it continues to specialize in Indian bridal apparel. The store also sells hand-painted jewelry and traditional wear with vegetable dyes done in an ancient technique.
“This was a blessing in disguise,” Kumar said. “We have more exposure for our business.”
