    I think the cost of labor and transportation defeats that idea. When Garden Fresh closed in Northbrook, they sold off everything even though it could have gone to other stores, too.

    The store closing is a result of a challenging location, not the overall health of the company, CEO Chris Sherrell said Tuesday morning. The Deerfield store had poor visibility from the road and challenging access, Sherrell said. “At the end of the day, it was just a bad location,” Sherrell said. “When you try to open 100 stores in five years, you’re going to have some misses.”

    Here's what I said upthread on 7/29/14:

The immediate community that resides around the place fought it pretty hard, so you know they're not shopping there. With Whole Foods just up the street and Jewel kitty-corner, you have to wonder who their potential customer base is. With nothing really distinctive to offer and fairly high prices, it doesn't seem to be the kind of store that's going draw customers from outside the immediate area, either.

    I'll admit that it lasted a couple years longer than I thought it would.

    I'm still surprised the Mount Prospect store has not only survived but improved (hard to put my finger on it, but it seems better than when it opened). However, that location it merely awkward for *me*, requiring a trip through the worst traffic light in the area, or about a mile out of the way due to the angle of Rand Road.

    I still only shop there when I see a sale in the paper, or I'm looking for an ingredient that is a little odd, and on the health/GF/natural front like an odd flour.
