Anyone really know what's going on about the R Hirt closing? (DTW)

Detroiters should know about R Hirt's in Eastern Market closing at the end of the year. This is one of the best places in the Detroit area for cheeses and gourmet foods! Is it the economy? Or a family squabble, as the media is reporting? They can't close!

    There was a piece in, I think, the Detroit News -- anyway, there's a dispute in the family. One side owns R Hirt at Eastern Market, the other the R Hirt warehouse/distribution side of the business. The R Hirt people are closing and opening under another name. Assume they'll still have good stuff to sell -- so it's staying in the family and at that site.
