Yogorino Closes and Robinson Luggage is going out of Business

 Yesterday I wrote about Kembrel closing, but the good news is Blue Claw is moving in.

Tonight I noticed two business’ closing, with no word on what’s going in. Yorgorino at 12th and Walnut Streets closed. I guess it just didn’t catch on because of all the competition from surrounding yogurt and fake yo stores. They still have an outlet at 20th and Locusts, and will be opening at 32nd and Chestnut soon.

 UPDATE: 11/7/13 – I HEAR THE IGLOO DESSERT IS MOVING IN. They have a spot in Greys Ferry too; Update Update: owner Zac Parker tells me that “It will be very similar to the first location with a few additions and
upgrades.  There will be more seating than the Yogorino space and there
will be outdoor seating too.  We hope to have a soft opening in late
January with a grand opening on March 1st.”

WOW this is a shocker. Robinson Luggage going out of business. They’ve really been a staple in Center City for decades. Kinda sad they’ve been defeated by the big box stores.  Check out the Robert Moran story in the Inquirer for the rest of the story.
BTW The Mandarin Chinese restaurant closed it’s doors at 19th and Chestnut about a month ago.
