Call The Kettle Black is calling it quits in Kits


On February 29 (or earlier if things sell out), Call The Kettle Black at W 4th and Vine will close its doors. The Kerrisdale and North Vancouver locations will remain open. I hate the fact another business is leaving the neighbourhood as their lease comes up.  That said, I made the best of the situation with the purchase of a beautiful Emily Henry ceramic casserole dish at 40% off.  All items in the store are now on sale from 25-75% off but things are moving fast.

    Not surprising- I don’t see how they could have made a dime all the time they’ve been in business in Kits-the other stores must have subsidised the 4th Ave location.

    Really, when they took over the biz from the former kitchen store I just had to shake my head. The same not inexpensive kitchenware you can find all over the city and with Ming Wo a block away.

    These guys are, I believe, from Edmonton where they have a store of the same name. I’m thinking that market research was minimal before moving in.

    All the same 4th is taking a beating with more empty store fronts then I’ve ever seen.
