Espresso Mod (210 North 9th Street) closed last week. The downtown coffee house opened in late 2005. A post from user "espressomod" -- presumably, but not definitely, connected to the business -- on the Urban St. Louis message board (scroll down) is critical of the incentives that Schnucks' new Culinaria market received from the City of St. Louis: "[Culinaria] should have been an addition but instead their business model was copy what was there already and do it cheaper. So therefore everyone surrounding them has lost 1/2 of their business."
