Cheese Stands Alone Closed??

Does anyone know what happened to The Cheese Stands Alone in Lincoln Square? Their website states that they are closed as of yesterday!

  1. How unfortunate. I admit I haven't shopped there in a while but the miserable weather this winter has precluded my normal walks over to Western for cheese shopping. I hope Matt & Sarah are able to find a new location that allows them to prosper (and I hope it's not too far away from me!).

    1. Their lease is up at the end of February, and they decided not to renew. Years ago my barber was in that storefront and moved for lower rent and a more responsive landlord. Some things apparently have not changed.

      Whether they will reopen in a different location nearby is unclear because rents in Lincoln Square have become too high relative to sales potential.
