Big News From Suburb Service

Dear Friends and Family, When Suburb Service’s owner Candy Johns passed away a few short months ago, so very many of you responded with warmth and kindness, and let us know how loved Candy was in the North Seattle community that her shop served. We are forever grateful for the love and care you showed all of us here at Suburb Service, especially to Howard Musolf, her husband. We understand that there may be some anxiety over what her passing wil mean to our shop. There are some ventures that are too specific to a person to continue when they pass.

We continue to be forward-thinking to this day.  Candy was ... read more
