Treasure Island is closing down...

Treasure Island was always a nice store to shop at, especially the one in Hyde Park. Unfortunately I've never been to that location when it was formerly the Hyde Park Food Co-op, but I had the opportunity to shop at a local European grocery store.

I'm disappointed to find out that Treasure Island - a family-owned company - is forced to close down operations. I'd be curious what could replace them in that spot near 55th & Lake Park.
You might recognize Steve Daniels, he did some good reporting on what happened with Seaway Bank. When the news broke he hammered out some tweets about Treasure Island and one of those is a link to a Sun-Times article about the impending closure.

Here's another tweet from someone who has been to the Hyde Park store recently. Kind of a shame the shelves are just about empty already.
Finally in recognizing that an employer is closing down it's bound to be difficult for the employees. I would be somewhat disappointed that a company isn't doing right not just by their employees, but by their suppliers as well.
Finally I wanted to share this tweet for those who are employed at Treasure Island. I suppose there are groups out there who want to look out for those who were affected by this.
