King's Pier pops up on Agricola

Finally! Some action on Agricola and Woodill!

A post shared by KingsPier (@kingspiervintage) on

The long-abandoned 2347 Agricola Street is coming back to life this week. Dartmouth vintage boutique King's Pier Curated Collections (13 Kings Wharf Place) is popping up as a satellite store in the former north end laundromat, bringing its pre-loved fashions to Agricola and Woodill for the next two weeks.

King's Pier owner Laura MacNutt is taking her show on the road as Port of Call because her location on the Dartmouth canal—which has been closed since the end of December—isn't exactly winter-friendly. So, to tide over shoppers until warmer days, she'll bring a bunch of brand new, yet-to-be-seen stock, lots of men's footwear and "a ridiculous amount of winter coats" with her to what she calls a "raw space" on Agricola.

What will become of 2347 Agricola after Port of Call pulls up its anchor in a couple of weeks remains a mystery for now. Priority 1 real estate's Adam Conter, a co-owner of the building, says he's had significant interest from potential new tenants — 27 of them to be exact.

 "We believe we've bought the gateway to the north end," he says, adding that he's focussed on bringing someone "strong and local" into the building.

Conter and his partners have gutted the street-level retail space and its second-floor apartment, both of which will be fully rebuilt. He hopes to have more news on what's next for the space in the coming weeks.

Starting tomorrow (Thursday, January 25), King's Pier's Port of Call will be open Tuesday through Sunday, noon 'til 5pm.
