Lower Division has undergone some big changes over the last few months centered around SE 11th and SE 12th Ave. Known as Jimmy’s Tire and Annex Building, the spot is now jam-packed with boutiques, books, art and food. Pine State Biscuits anchors the corner then stroll east down the hall to see Avidd Boutique (independently owned, women’s clothing), Trew Gear (outerwear), a woman-owned comic book store (Books With Pictures) and many more. When you get to the end, choose your own adventure: A left turn takes you into The Baker’s Mark (tasty sandwiches). A right turn leads you outside to the coming-very-soon Virtuous Pie – a MUCH-anticipated vegan pizza + ice cream transplant from Vancouver, Canada!
