Sarah's Tent - Bankrupcy?

I heard from a contact that they heard Sarah's tent in Miami was bankrupcy filing? Any news from those of you in Miami? It's not my favorite place but they definitely have the selection...

  1. Sarah's Tent, a kosher market in Aventura, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Thursday.

    The store is located at 3565 N.E. 207th St. Owner Haim Altit said it will remain opening during the bankruptcy proceedings.

    Sarah's Tent listed up to 49 creditors, less than $50,000 in assets and between $1 million and $10 million in liabilities on its filing.

    It listed Kenover of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Best Value of Miami as its two largest creditors, owed $143,139 and $110,512, respectively. Other local creditors include Agri, Southern Wine and Spirits, and Prime Card, all of Miami; and Waterway Plaza, of Fort Lauderdale

      It is sad to see kosher places closing. With a limited market the survival is hard. Kosher KIngdom a bit south and Aroma a bit north and west provide good kosher coverage, but I still liked to have all of them.

          Tomby can the community support Saras tent or the economy and people have stopped partronizing

          1. re: tomby

            They definitely filed Chapter 11 but will stay open althought various vendors will halt business relationships.

            I'm not sure about the restaurant which is in a separate location but run by the same people.

          2. sadly a sign of the times in South Florida. Economy spiralling downwards and fewer people keeping kosher, or not bothering to support kosher restaurants.

                I just walked by this restaurant on last Thursday evening around 7PM and it was closed. Not clear if out of business (chairs etc were still inside) but it looked unkempt outside, with fliers and such on the door- it looked like no one had swept up in front for a while. I know its out of season, but if a nice restaurant is closed on Thursday at 7, its closed.

                1. re: yanivk22

                  I don't think anyone wants it to close down yaniv, but if it has then it has. It is down to supply and demand, if people were not going there then they cannot stay open.

                    Can they survivie with new ownership?
