Farewell to Kitchen Port

And other retail closings

From the March, 2009 issue

The late activist attorney Art Carpenter came up with the idea of Kitchen Port forty years ago, when he and a bunch of his friends got tired of going to New York and Chicago to buy high-end cookware. It worked well for a long time, but on January 24, the store closed for good.

Kitchen Port opened in the basement of the triangular building at Fifth Avenue and Detroit Street. It moved across Fifth a year later to Kerrytown's second floor, where it remained until moving to Scio Township four years ago.
