    As long as they're staying in business! They're our go-to place for knife sharpening, the best around.

    I bet they'll have free parking at their new place! :lol: (For those who have never been... Even though they were practically in the Loop, they had a free parking lot on the premises for customers, which was a tremendous convenience for dropping off and picking up knives, given their location.)

    That's too bad. What's left as a frakking marker of the neighborhood says the vegetarian who likes historic neighborhoods ?! And yes the current location was a couple of miles from my home and they have parking. :cry:

    The new location, if this is help to anyone, is just steps from the Harlem Ave./O'Hare Blue line stop.

    Also, steps from where I used to live [but still convenient from current location].

    My knives could use a good touch-up, so I'm looking forward to the opening.

    And for those traveling by car, it's at the Harlem Avenue exit from the Kennedy.

    What I have come to appreciate: Selling their property might be enough money to retire. Yet they are moving to new location and continuing on.

    There is a another poster who has a business in the same neighborhood. They once commented their property is worth more than their business. As I recall, they are still working their business.

    Master Butcher Kari Underly lived in that neighborhood. When she presented to Culinary Historians a few years ago, she commented how this neighborhood was being reshaped. She was not particularly happy about it.

    About a year ago, I was on a panel in the West Randolph Street area. I could not find parking at all. I ended up with valet parking and made a point of keeping the receipt. I was worried I might need to prove I did not illegally park my car a few months later. Nothing happened, but I was prepared.

    Not too many years ago, you could roll a bowling ball down that street at night and hit nothing but the curb.

    Driving by this evening, I did a doubletake when I noticed this place for the first time. I hadn't seen this thread when it was last active. They're now open. I wouldn't be surprised if there was parking in the back, it's all lot back there.
