When one door closes…

Interesting positioning of headlines recently on Google News…

William Glen Articles on Google

On sacbee.com and news10.net, we learn that William Glen is closing its doors at the end of the year. Then, over at sacramentopress.com (at sacbee.com, too), we find out that “the children of one of William Glen’s founders will soon open housewares and holiday stores in Old Sacramento.”

The stores are expected to open by early October or sooner. Late Thursday afternoon, Snyder and Guthrie were caught off guard by the news that the William Glen store will close after Christmas.

At any rate, it is always tough to see another Sacramento business shut own. At the same time, it’s great to hear that a business is opening in Sacramento. Remember when grand openings were an everyday occurrence? Sigh.

The commenters at sacbee.com, of course, are all over the place with this one. Lots of blaming of the President, which has become the norm for ANY article, and random shots at Sacramento.

Oh, and Sacramento’s second largest law firm called it quits last week.

Have a great weekend, y’all!

  1. At least according to the comments on the Bee, not exactly the most reliable source but food for thought (and about as healthy for one’s sanity as bedtime readings from the Necronomicon), William Glen is going out of business now that both of the founders of the business have died and the widow wants to retire. And it’s almost a good use of the word “irony” that the children of businesspeople who opened a store in Sacramento’s first suburban shopping mall (Town & Country Village) are about to open a store on K Street, the place that used to be Sacramento’s shopping street until the age of suburban malls.

    I just hope that one of their two stores carries the same Sulawesi coffee beans that William Glen had–my favorite coffee beans, when I can afford them!
