Jos et Basile / closed?

I was at JTM today and tried to go to Jos et Basile. Not only were the doors locked, but the center refrigerated counter was gone and so were a lot of shelves and products. Are they gone? I have a particular fondness for their arancini -- I have on previous occasions walked down the Main back to the bus stop, munching on a warm arancini like its fruity namesake. And no one else seems to sell them, or if they do they are not as good as these ones.

Any and all info greatly appreciated.

  1. I pass in front of it everyday, and it seemed to be open and running up to yesterday, so I'm not too sure. There is absolutely no sign or nothing saying anything.

    I do remember that they had a 'for sale' sign for a while last year, don't know if it's related or not.
