Knitwear moves

Popular knitting store Woolly & Co., formerly in downtown Birmingham, packed its bags and knitting crates at the end of August and moved west on Maple into the Village Knoll Plaza in Bloomfield Township, where it opened its newly-spacious digs next to Kroger at 3630 W. Maple Road at Lahser on September 1. Owner Aviva Susser said the COVID-19 shutdown made her realize a change of locale would be more convenient for a majority of her customers. “During COVID, we did a lot of home delivery, and we realized a lot of our customers live in Bloomfield. This location is a lot more convenient for a lot of customers, and the parking is free and available.” Susser, who lives in Birmingham and was known to walk to her previous store, just up a few steps from Toast on Pierce Street, said, “As much as I love Birmingham and being in Birmingham, it’s a move of convenience – so people don’t have to worry about meters, finding parking and driving around the block for parking or giving up and not coming in.” Woolly & Co. features an extensive stock of yarn and supplies, and looks forward to offering a lot of workshops and classes for knitters. “I think the new store is going to be fabulous,” Susser said.
