Town Cutler, currently based in San Francisco, CA, is opening a new location in Chicago’s West Loop. The store, which is focused on the sale, manufacture and sharpening of knives, is set to open in September.
Owned by Galen Garretson, a former restaurant chef and butcher, the store is the second for the business. Garretson chose Chicago for the second location because “it’s a great restaurant town; a great food town. We wanted to be somewhere people appreciated the preparation of food,” he recently told the Chicago Tribune.
Garretson will be on hand to open the Chicago store as well as hire and train the staff before returning to San Francisco.
