    Was there this weekend, not too much left in the reasonable price range. Too bad it's closing though, found out they're owned by Dean and Deluca.

      I was there today. I think I saw one pinot for 40% off & the rest of stock was 30% off - same as last week.

        Does anyone know what's taking that space?

          I suspect we won't know for quite sometime - well at least mid-march, but it could be the new Pinkberry. Stanford SC usually doesn't publicize until they are doing the remodeling. Many of the Stanford shopping center independent retailer staples have been closing in favor of upscale chain stores - very sad : ( .

            I agree it is sad that Oakville is closing, it's been around as long as I can remember. But it's not quite independent as I found out when I spoke with the employees last week, both stores are owned by Dean and Deluca.

              May be owned by Dean and Deluca (a relatively recent thing), but it at least wasn't a carbon copy of something you get at another mall (like for instance Williams Sonoma). We live across the street from the mall and go there often and enjoyed having a place we could get different items. We still have Sigona's and Andronico's nearby though...

              Very sad indeed. As a nascent food dork in college, I'd spend the last $20 in my checking account on their crab cakes and a wedge of whichever cheese they recommended - just to try it. It then became the "go-to" place for tailgating grub that put the people in the parking spots next to us to shame. Good times.

                I've always been hooked on their spicy prawns; tho expensive, I thought it was a fair price for the quality.
