I was doing a little bit of digging on the history of the former Chili’s restaurant space and the Pottery Barn space on the north side of Knox Street. Turns out, Pottery Barn was originally a movie theater and its story to becoming Pottery Barn is quite interesting. My digging also came up with the excellent article from 1998 which chronicles the addition of Chili’s (RIP) and Pottery Barn. Weirs and its principals seem to have played a significant role in determining which tenants we see today. It’s also very interesting to hear that Chili’s wasn’t the preferred choice, but it was allowed to lease the space in an effort to attract Pottery Barn.
