Strawberry Fields closing December 14th

Per a report in the News-Gazette, it appears that Strawberry Fields Natural Food Store in Urbana will be closing its doors on December 14th.

URBANA — Strawberry Fields will close its store at the end of business Dec. 14, with the possibility of another store opening in that space in 2015, General Manager Jack Wallace said.

A liquidation sale at the natural foods store and cafe will begin Dec. 1 and run through Dec. 14, with discounts starting at 30 percent off.

“A purchase of the business is under way, with the hope that it will reopen under new ownership sometime in 2015,” Wallace said.

But he said he didn’t know whether the new owners will use the Strawberry Fields name.

So, the store could reopen under different ownership, or be turned into something new. We’ll just have to wait and see.
