Whoa! We mentioned back in February that the management at Reading Terminal Market was threatening to evict longtime tenant Harry G. Ochs & Sons from its stall for outstanding back rent, but we never expected this would happen. Today comes word that Nick Ochs, who took over the business after his father passed away, closed up shop for good on Monday, thus ending the celebrated butcher shop’s 105 year run at the market. The Insider reports that the younger Ochs has his sights set on Manayunk’s Main Street Market. But that’s not all the bad news.
Apparently, Naked Chocolate, which once boasted three locations, closed up its only remaining sweet spot, its original home base at 1317 Walnut St. Foobooz reports that a sign posted on the door says the owners are looking for a new location to reopen soon.
