Hyde Park, IL-based Freehling Pot And Pan has announced that it will close its doors. The independent gourmet store had been in business for 43 years.
“After many years in Harper Court and on 53rd Street, the Frehling Pot And Pan Company is closing. I would like to thank you all for your business and for the courtesy, kindness and friendship you have shown to me and my staff. No store has ever had more interesting, fun customers. So do come in and say goodbye to us and enjoy our going out of business sale,” was posted on the store’s Facebook page.
The store is owned by Susan Freehling, who cited retirement as a reason to close the store.
