La Belle Cuisine-Fine Cookware, an independent gourmet housewares store that was named to Food Network‘s list of top kitchenware stores in the nation, has announced that it will close. The Emmaus, PA-based location has been in business for more than 40 years.
However, while the store may be closing, owner Nancy O’Keefe said that she is planning to transition the business into a more food-based business that will operate online.
“Continuing our coffee and tea business is a must, due to the large number of in-store and online coffee tea customers. We will continue to offer those products and accessories, like Chemex coffee filters, which are always in demand. Other products we will continue are our gourmet candies, Italian food products, and, of course, the marinara sauce,” O’Keefe told local media outlet The Morning Call.
The store’s last day in business is July 29.
