Chandler Rudd Closes

November 20, 2009

Another sad closing to report.  Gourmet grocer Chandler Rudd & Co. has closed after 145 years in operation.  The store is officially closed, but a call to Chandler Rudd revealed that they will be open one last day,  Saturday November 21 in an effort to liquidate some of its existing stock.

The store located at 20314 Chagrin Blvd in Shaker Heights,  one of the last grocers to offer delivery was known for high quality meats and gourmet items.  They were unable to compete in today’s marketplace of large mega-supermarkets, and an increasingly mobile consumer, no longer reliant on their delivery service.

Chandler Rudd’s closing will leave a void in many people’s holiday food shopping.
