A food market seen as a success story in efforts to bring retail back to the heart of the city is closing.
The Washington Market, located between Chippewa and Tupper, announced Monday on its Facebook page that this Friday, October 6th would be its last day in business at its original location.
"We've been a part of this growing downtown area for a decade and it's been a great ride. There's too many thoughts and feelings to express but, in short, we feel lucky to have gotten to know so many of the residents and workers in the area and will miss you all dearly."
But it looks like the market is saying 'see you soon' and not 'goodbye for good.'
"We're also really excited about the future and will keep you posted on our new location that we'll be opening in the near future," the market said.
