Epicure Market closed?
A friend wrote this:
"The closing of Coral Gables Epicure in less than two years is no surprise to those of us that tried to shop there on several occasions. Many of us in the Gables and Coconut Grove where very excited when we first heard the good news that Epicure was to establish a location in our neighborhood. A friend living in the Gables just down the street bragged that his property value just increased by five percent. Large crowds of Epicure Fans attended the first few weeks of its opening and where most impressed with the layout, quality of the products and the courteous service that staff provided. But soon the reality began to set in, when it became evident that Epicure was pricing themselves out of the market. Perhaps they mistook us for the Golden Beach, La Gorce, Bal Harbor, Fisher Island crowd. I and others spoke with some of the mangers and explained that their prices where way above those of even the pricey Whole Foods. We strongly suggested that they make their prices more reasonable or they would soon lose any good will they had from their supporters. Regrettably they did not take the warnings seriously enough and soon few neighbors returned to shop. It’s a shame that management was not successful in convincing the owners to stop gouging the public. Many hard working employees will now have to find other jobs and Epicure has left a bad taste in the mouths of many neighbors that wanted them to be successful here."
