The Mode Building is about to get a blast from the past.

The Mode Lounge, which is set to open its doors Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014, in the space vacated by The Grape Escape in June, is preparing to mount a refurbished The Mode sign with its signature scrawl recast in neon by Wil Kirkman of Rocket Neon

The Mode Building, located at the corner of Eighth and Idaho streets, was once a department store, but has since been converted into multiple retain spaces. The Kennedy-era sign could be mounted to the building as early as this week, according to Kirkman.
