Acorn Alley is a retail shopping plaza located in a newly renovated area across from Kent Stage in downtown Kent. Acorn Alley I features several local retail stores and dining options, and the recently opened Acorn Alley II will include several additional stores. Some businesses include jewelry stores, clothing boutiques and numerous restaurants and cafes. The project was the idea of local developer Ron Burbick, who has plans for continued expansion in the future. The alley's transformation is part of the rapid growth that the downtown area is experiencing.
