17th Street Market, open for more than 20 years at 840 E. 17th Street, has announced that it will be closing its doors on March 31.
The announcement was made via e-newsletter and the market's website, seventeenthstreetmarket.com.
“It has been our pleasure, and our honor, to serve our grocery customers in Tucson for the past 20 years,” Tucson Food Service President and CEO Tom Kusian writes in the newsletter. “Our loyal customers have enjoyed our eclectic, sometimes exotic, often surprising inventory, and local music and entertainment features over the years, and we want to sincerely thank them for their patronage.”
The newsletter goes on to note that the closure comes as a result of the growth of Tucson Food Service's other divisions, including Tucson Party Rentals.
