Bye Bye Oakville Grocery
CityScape announced today that restaurant mogul Sam Fox will be adding a new gourmet market to his roster -- and it just so happens to be in the exact same spot as CityScape's recently opened Oakville Grocery

Sam Fox, of Fox Restaurant Concepts, and Ashley Young, owner of Chloe's Corner at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale, will be taking over the space and turning it to a second Chloe's Corner location in the next couple weeks. 

Gee, that was quick.

Sadly, we're not exactly shocked that this is going down. As pretty as Oakville is, we had our doubts that the shop would be able to stay afloat long. Hard to imagine the downtown lunch crowd alone could make that happen.  

And although we would rather see Oakville stay, we're pretty sure turning it into a Sam Fox venture is the best way to actually keep a gourmet market downtown. 

Oakville will be up and running until the transformation is complete.

  It is sad to see NT's food writing stable standing on so much conjecture these days. And there certainly seems to be some consensus that this is so. That this collective tone continues to merely blurt out above the persistent din of readership criticism reminds me more than a little bit of that infantile reaction to disagreement where the confronted simply cover their ears and yammer on ever more loudly.

Thanks for your opinion, now everyone head over to the Arizona Republic who did an extensive six-month investigative report on the store and its slime ball of an owner.

Ok so...dear EVERYONE. I'd suggest reading Saturday's article from the Republic--Oakville didn't fail. The owner is a scoundrel. Seriously, anyone who has ever been in there knows Oakville is making money hand over fist. That wasn't the issue. Read the article. Clearly the owner has a pattern of behavior.

yup, typical NT bias and improperly researched reporting at its finest.

Thanks for that info. I completely missed that article. I hope that Sam Fox and Ashley Young do a better job at running the store and I wish them all the luck in the world.
