I’m having Quiznos closing flashbacks…

Thanks to Dennis Jansen (and others) who have messaged us about “Red Velvet is moving in Penn Quarter.”
Curious. The Bakers & Baristas had just morphed into Vivi Pizza Roma in September. Updates when we learn where the new location will be.

Uh oh, thanks to LWW for sending: “At the Grand Trunk/Kabob Capital space, which was apparently in the process of being re-branded as “Eats United”. Having worked nearby throughout this establishment’ various iterations, I can’t say I’m exactly shocked to see this.” Read More

Thanks to Kristen for sharing:
“I ran an errand to Bed Bath and Beyond in Chinatown and the cashier told me that as of today they are a “liquidation store” and that they will be closing (I didn’t get the date). I told her I didn’t know that and she said that employees had just heard today themselves. I am not heartbroken by the store closing, but I definitely feel bad for the employees, especially this time of year. Thought I would share especially after what happened with La Tasca across the street.”
