It is with a heavy heart, that I must announce my decision to not renew my lease and close the Larder & Cupboard brick and mortar storefront. The retail store will be open through Monday, December 30th. Although I am sad to close our storefront, I am excited about the future and the opportunity to continue to work with our local community artisans. I will continue to supply my wholesale customers, and you will still be able to find Larder & Cupboard and our products at local farmer’s markets, pop-ups, events, and retail partners, such as Union Studio. My next market is scheduled for January 25th at Schlafly Bottleworks. Watch for more announcements at the end of January. . 🍓. I am proud of what Larder & Cupboard has brought to St. Louis, and I loved being part of Maplewood’s thriving small business community for the past five years. I will miss our neighbors and our customers, and I will forever cherish the relationships I have built with all of the small producers and artisans. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the support and for making my time in Maplewood so memorable. . 🍓. I ask you to continue your support for Larder & Cupboard and our local artisans by helping us sell the remaining inventory. In addition to the remaining inventory, many of the store’s fixtures and displays will be on sale, including, the rustic farm table and the vintage/reclaimed wood pieces. Sales start Thursday, December 26th, with a few exceptions. I will be posting more details about sales on social media, so keep an eye out. . 🍓. Due to the closing of the storefront, all gift certificates must be redeemed by December 30th. . 🍓. Thank you for your continued love and support, Cindy Higgerson
It may happen. It may not happen.
It might happen.
Um. Is this happening or not?
It’s happening! GO! GO NOW!
Whoever has tried to close a storefront in less than a week, you have my mad respect.
