The Alley, located in Lake View since 1976, announced that it is moving to its Avondale warehouse, 2620 W. Fletcher Ave, according to a press release.

The warehouse, referred to as "The Mothership" by owner Mark Thomas, has been the home for its website, screen printing operation and jewelry operation for more than 20 years.

For The Alley to continue to grow into the new virtual world, it became necessary to have a video studio, photo studio and a podcast studio; this could only be accomplished in the Avondale location, as there is not enough space in the Belmont location.

Thomas estimates that the move—including a new graphic art, photo, video and podcast studio, along with other associated intellectual property purchases—will run an excess of $100,000 to be ready to grow into the next post-COVID period.

Along with this move to Avondale, Thomas has formed a block club of residents. He is also creating the East Avondale Chamber of Commerce to organize and promote the small local businesses in that community.
