The City Feed and Supply on Boylston Street will be closed starting Aug. 15 due to needed building repairs, with the hope that the store will be ready to reopen in the fall.
"It is our hope that the work will be completed as quickly as possible and we will be able to re-open this store in the fall," wrote Kristine Cortese and David Warner, owners of the market/café/deli, in an email newsletter. "We will be retaining all the folks who currently work at Boylston Street and moving them to our Centre Street location (aka Big Feed, C St)."
Cortese and Warner founded City Feed and Supply 16 years ago with the notion that it "...was a neighborhood store that sold food you would actually want to eat every day, not just snacks and junk food." Thus, the birth of the Boylston Street store aka Little Feed, B St., The Little Store.
The store ran several promotions over the weekend in an effort to clear the shelves, including offering 30 percent off all groceries and free coffee.
