A reader writes: “I just walked past and saw a letter in the window announcing the closing of Pop! (case in point: their website is down) after 7 years. Just across Johnson Street, the owner of The Coffee Shop NE said the letter appeared yesterday, 8/16, and that the downtown St. Paul Pop!! is also closed.” PiPress’s Kathie Jenkins confirms that, while the St. Paul location isn’t necessarily closed for good, it’s certainly a tenuous decision.
UPDATE: Per an e-mail from Pop!!, the Minneapolis location has been sold, with closure effective immediately. In the meantime, Pop!! St. Paul will “close temporarily in hopes of restructuring.”
