Good Harvest Market to close Third Ward store

After a rough 15 months, Good Harvest Market is closing its health food store in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward.
The company said its sales were negatively affected over the past year by the poor economy as well as nearby sewer repairs in mid-2009, which often “obliterated” its storefront from view.
Good Harvest will be offering all remaining food and health and beauty products at 20- to 40-percent off, starting Wednesday, Feb. 10, and will close its by Saturday, Feb. 20.
“We have deep regret in announcing this closing, both from the core group of great customers we have, to our wonderful employees, some of whom will be losing their jobs and will be very missed.” said Joe Nolan, store owner.  “While our pre-opening research pointed to a successful location, it’s apparent that the Third Ward area can’t sustain a natural food store, at least at this time.  With the increasing number of condos and apartments in the area, we hope that someone will consider our location for a food store, which would give residents a local option for their grocery dollars, rather than having to drive several miles away.”
Good Harvest’s Waukesha County location remains open in Pewaukee.  In addition to more than 2000 gluten-free options and thousands of organic items, Good Harvest Market offers locally grown foods, sustainably harvested foods and fairly traded products.
