LOGAN SQUARE — An application for a new package goods license at Provenance Food and Wine's Logan Square location was filed with the city the same day the local store announced it would close this fall, according to an official public notice.
A farm to table restaurant paired with a small retail shop is set to replace Provenance when it closes September 27 after more than eight years in the neighborhood, according to the store owners.
The incoming business is a model "sort of like a mini farmer’s market," they said.
The package goods license from B-Keg LLC was paid for Aug. 7, the same day Provenance owners announced on Facebook that their lease wouldn’t be renewed and the store at 2528 N. California Ave. would close, according to an official public notice sent to all voters within 250 feet of the site.
Provenance, which specialized in small batch pasta, cheese, craft beer and spirits, attempted to extend its lease until the end of the year but was unsuccessful, the owners told supporters on Aug. 13.
“We are feeling a combination of sadness, shock [and] surprise to announce that September 27th will be the last day of business in our Logan Square location. The building has been sold and the new owner is not renewing our lease, giving us 60 days to vacate,” an earlier post read.
The Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection deadline for public input on the new license application, be it support or objection, is listed as Sept. 11.
