When did Gorben's Fish Market and Take Out disappear?

I was dreaming of the succulent scallops that only Groben's offers and found their Germantown institution closed for business. Does anyone know what happened to the highest quality fish monger on this side of town? Devastated...been shopping there for two decades.

      This is a terrible shame, and a terrible loss to our community. I've shopped there almost weekly since moving to the area a decade ago, and was equally devastated to learn they were permanently closed.
