According to Seattle Eater, another Ballard favorite is set to close its doors at the end of the month.
After four and a half years, Savour specialty food store and café (2242 NW Market St) will be permanently closing.
An email sent to fans and friends by owner Holly McLean revealed the sad news. “It’s been four and a half great years at Savour, and now it is time for us to move on to our next adventure and are closing the café and store,” McLean writes.
After the closure, Seattle Eater reveals that McLean will be going back to her former career in the corporate travel industry. “I have loved being here, but working at the store full-time is a lot, and I need to get back to traveling,” McLean tells Seattle Eater.
Savour opened back in 2009 selling flavored salts, gourmet sauces, wine, cheese and more. McLean then began selling gourmet sandwiches in 2010. It is a favorite of many in our community and will surely be sadly missed.
Savour’s final day of business is dependent on both store traffic and stock levels. All stock is now marked with a 25 to 50 percent discount.
Store hours until the closure are Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
