Maplewood P&Z OK’s antique store, group home

Maplewood Plan and Zoning on Monday OK’d a conditional use permit (pending approval by city council) for an antique store to operate at 7405 Manchester Road.

The spot was a barber shop for 17 years (Yokley’s), then a gift shop (My Happy Place), then considered for an Asian fusion restaurant (Kim Cheese) — they backed out.

They also approved a conditional use permit for a single-family house at 7406 Flora Avenue to be used as a group living facility/group home for Loretto Volunteers.

From the Loretto Volunteers website, “The Loretto Volunteer Program pairs volunteers with social justice organizations for a formative year of service.  Through meaningful work and communal living, volunteers live out the Loretto Community’s mission to work for justice and act for peace – guided by the core values of social justice, community, simplicity and spirituality.”
