business news in context, analysis with attitude

Chicago Tribune reports that bankrupt gourmet grocer Fox & Obel has once again closed its doors. It is unclear whether it will be reopening anytime soon.

Fox & Obel filed for bankruptcy less than a week ago, and that was just months after it was closed down for significant food safety problems - it was a sixth time in three years that the retailer flunked a health inspection. Now, Bill Bolton, head of the investment group that bought Fox & Obel, is being sued by investors for allegedly using money meant to bolster the retailer's operations for other purposes.

Other than being in debt for between $1 million and $10 million, there is no evident reason for Fox & Obel to now be closed.

A bigger mess than Market Basket, by far. Oy.
