Thanks, rising rents. Way to go, tone-deaf development. Let’s hear it for that sweet, sweet capitalism, right?
Right. The same, ah, market forces that drove Salvage Vanguard Theater from its longtime home on Manor Road have worked their economic treachery on the popular Eastside grocery store – the nation’s first zero-waste grocery store – and so, yes, in.gredients is no more after this Friday.
The friendly, organics-forward emporium that we’ve so often gladly covered here in the Chronicle has posted a farewell on its Facebook page – ever positive, those lovely citizens, and looking toward whatever the future might hold – inviting all to attend tonight's final Porch Session of live music and neighborly mingling there along the rapidly gentrifying corridor.
Sic transit gloria mundi, FFS.
