Busch's Grove, the restaurant, endured for more than a century. Busch's Grove, the upscale grocery store, will have a considerably shorter run: The store announced last week via its email newsletter that it would close for business after Saturday, January 8.

(The Post-Dispatch reported this first, as far as I can tell.)

The email cites the bad economy for the market's closure. Indeed, it was confronted with a bad economy from the get-go: It opened (as the Market at Busch's Grove) in December 2008, a few months after the financial crisis that precipitated the recession.

Only three months ago Busch's Grove rebooted itself, changing its name from the Market at Busch's Grove to Busch's Grove - An Inspired Gourmet Market and introducing new specialty items.
