Willy St. Coop Out of Metropolitan Place

March 26, 2008

In disappointing news for many downtown Madison dweller, Willy St. Coop announced today they are pulling out of the lease space they had committed to in Metropolitan Place Phase II.

Here’s the press release from earlier today:

Willy Street Co-op Ending Relationship with Metro Place

This morning we terminated our lease with the Metropolitan Place II site, after the unanimous vote by the Board of Directors. This was a difficult decision to reach, but the ongoing costs (which appear to be extremely difficult if not impossible to recoup) make continuing to pursue this site a financial risk to the health of the Co-op. Check out our FAQ pageThough we will begin looking at other retail sites immediately, it will likely be a considerable amount of time before we can securely say we have another site to move forward on. In the mean time, I would like to thank you for your past support and hope for your continued patience.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to write a customer comment or a note in the binder at the Information Station (near the bulk coffee) in the store.  Questions will be answered in a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) available at the Information Station and on the website starting the evening of Tuesday, March 25th.

–Anya Firszt, General Manager
