This is how the cookie crumbled

After a truly valiant effort to keep its doors open, St. Paul Classic Cookie company announced via its blog that it won't be able to continue operating at its current retail location.  

It isn't the first business that was forced to close after light rail construction and detours made travel difficult in this section of St. Paul. Like their former neighbors before them, Caribe, the SPCCC turned to Kickstarter in hopes of raising the funds to continue operating. Sadly, it was not able to reach its goal.

If you're worried about how to feed your cookie fix, all hope is not yet lost.

@spclassiccookie Yes! Onward! I'll miss you in that neighborhood, though. Keep me posted!
