Jacobson Bros is gone because it wasn't very good.
They also made dramatic cutbacks in hours and products toward the end, staffing irregularities, etc. At the beginning, one of the Jacobsons was around a lot and that seemed to help. We bought all of our meat there, and even milk because it was right there. I remember the last time I tried to go there, the hours had been cut to 9-2---sorta difficult for condo dwellers who work .
When I look at the businesses on the square, what do they have that I actually need, as a downtown resident? Perhaps the cheese place will do best in the winter, when the market is moved and drastically smaller. Plus it's there every day. I hope to visit it soon!!
