Dickey's and Former Vintage Are Gone
November 2019 Marketplace closings
From the December, 2019 issue
Dickey's Barbecue Pit closed abruptly in mid November, with an eviction notice from Fifteenth District court posted on the franchise's door. The notice gave the tenants twenty-four hours to evacuate, and the restaurant put up its own closing notice and voicemail that day. We were unable to reach Will Kaufman, the last-known owner, but Dickey's answering machine announced, "Unfortunately we are permanently closed. Thank you, Ann Arbor, for all your support."
In another sudden closing, Former Vintage, whose summer opening we covered in our October issue, vacated its spot on E. Liberty just a couple weeks into October. Owner Jordan Werthmann, who opened the Nineties-style used clothing store as an expansion of his first Royal Oak store, did not return our call. The Royal Oak store remains open.
