Thistle and Pearl Tattoo

Nestled among the cobblestones of Wall Street downtown Asheville, enterprising businesses have set up shop. While many locals may be familiar with the eateries available, the yoga studio, and perhaps even Love Hate Social Club, a tattoo studio owned by Miami Ink famous Ami James, few may know of the small businesses quietly tucked into the building simply known as 12 Wall Street. Those who operate out of 12 Wall Street are practitioners of sorts, ranging in scope from holistic healers to therapists, massage and otherwise.

Mitchell's Tuxedos is a small shop tucked in the back corner of the Asheville Mall, where they have been serving customers for over 35 years. A family owned business, this local enterprise is one of three storefronts in the mall that are not part of a big box retailer. Owner Kathy Beatty realizes that bigger is not better when it comes to providing customer service and that personal touch that clients crave for their important day. Mitchell's Tuxedos offers the sale and renting of quality tuxedos for prom and weddings, as well as offering business suits available to rent for that important meeting or interview.

Asheville Mall Losing More Stores

Inside Asheville Mall

The Asheville Mall, located on 3 South Tunnel Road, has been experiencing a high number of turnover in recent years.
