Gourmet Pantry closing after 30 years

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

After more than 30 years in business, the owners of a staple store for local cooks have decided to retire.

Gourmet Pantry is holding its retirement sale.

The store first opened on 50th Street, but moved to the Kingsgate Shopping Center when it was built.

Owners Ed Fowler and his wife say the decision to retire was difficult, but it's time to focus on family.

"We've been real blessed with the community and all the support we've gotten and the nice comments we've gotten," Ed Fowler said. "It's with mixed emotions that we're closing, but after doing this for 30 years it's time to be with the grandkids and start traveling and doing stuff for us."

Fowler says they'll keep their sale going through the end of January and then decide where to go from there.

Customers with gift cards or store credit need to use those by Jan. 31.

Fowler says they've had inquiries from others interested in buying the store, but nothing official has been decided.
