Waco, TX-based Gourmet Gallery announced that it will be closing its retail location. While the store is scheduled to close by January 15, it depends on how long it takes to clear out the inventory as well as the fixtures, owner Karyn Miller Brooks said in a newsletter.
“I speak for all four of us when I say thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us, laughing with us, crying with us, growing with us for the past ten years. We will miss the interaction and hope to maintain the wonderful relationships we have come to count on,” Brooks said.
Gourmet Gallery closed its old location in the summer of 2016 and re-opened in 2017. Brooks said that she plans to still host classes at Young Chefs Academy corporate headquarters, also located in Waco, TX for the foreseeable future.
Brooks’ mother, Jo Ann Miller, became the face of the brand on social media, often posing with products throughout the store.
