This was in the obit column of The Stranger-a weekly here in Seattle.

Nova Zembla, whose closing sale concludes this week, was the only
Bellevue furniture store to ever be named for a fictional kingdom in

** Bellevue, for those who do not know, is across Lake Washington and
connected to Seattle by a long bridge. The whole area is called "East
Side" and it's sort of like SF and East Bay, albeit not quite as huge (but
getting there, of course...) GD**
