Rachel’s has been a fixture on Poplar Avenue since 1993 but it will close to walk-ins at the end of the year. The clothes closet, food pantry and storehouse of furniture in the florist’s back building — for people who were hungry, cold or moving into apartments with nothing — will close when the shop does.
