Suwanna's Thai Orchid- Asheville

I noticed they have a huge sign on the building that advertises a foreclosure auction at the Buncombe County Courthouse.I guess this means they will be closing soon.I just thought it strange that they were still up and running with that sign out front.Anybody have any info??

      If they aren't the owners of the building then that would explain it somewhat. If they rent, then maybe they'll find another location.

        On a visit about 2-3 months ago Ms. Suwanna told us that she did not have
        to pay the rent at that time because the ownership of the building was in
        receivership, or something to that effect. I guess not it is coming down to
        crunch time when she will have to negotiate a lease with the new owners
        or move to a new site.
