After almost 40 years in business, the Healthy Home Market will close it’s remaining doors at its Plaza Midwood and Matthews location. The Davidson location closed in October 2017.
The owners put the Market up for sale last summer, but reportedly was not able to find a suitable buyer. The store specialized in organic, healthy food, products and goods that catered to those living a holistic lifestyle or attempting to.
Owner John Bauer announced a few days ago that the stores will have a going out of business sale effective immediately. In a letter addressed to customers, he wrote:
“The Healthy Home Market, formerly known as the Home Economist, announces a going out of business sale. Unfortunately, the active sales process did not produce a viable buyer. The sale will start this Friday, Jan. 12 at the two remaining Charlotte locations [Plaza Midwood and Galleria].”
“As an important part of the Charlotte grocery community for almost 40 years, we are very proud of our family-owned stores,” Bauer said. “The York family started the bulk food store concept back in 1979 with the slogan ‘buy a pinch or buy a pound’ and was one of the few places where bulk specialty and natural foods could be found.”
“We did our best to weather the Charlotte grocery wars, our forced move from our wonderful South Blvd location in 2014, closing our Independence Blvd store due to road widening and our new store concept in Lenoir that did not succeed,” he said.
“Closing our business was not an easy decision to make.”
No information yet on what will replace the store in a prime location in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood.
