    Oh good! I was so worried about the EGR elite not having anywhere to purchase overpriced kitchen utensils from a company owned by Bahraini potentates. Now they have the perfect complement to Fresh Thyme, which is really a Meijer that has been re-branded (and re-priced) so that the snoots don’t have to feel like they eat the same food as the proles.

    Honestly, what sort of future does a high-end utensil store have in a city that can’t even afford to maintain its roads anyway? I thought Investcorp (Sur La Table’s parent company) was known for their due diligence. I sure don’t see it here. But maybe that is why the board booted their CEO in 2014. Everything about this deal is based on emotion and desire, and not the facts. It will take a miracle for it to last longer than a few years.
