Back in October of 2011, we heard some rumors about Marble Slab Ice Creamery closing their doors. At the time we were unsure about the validity of this rumor, but as many suspected it appears to be true.
Upon a recent stroll down Michigan Avenue, we noticed the lights on at Marble Slab, but signs down and the place pretty much torn apart:
It's unfortunate to see. One of our Sloopin contributors has a theory about the "East side of the Street" being less than ideal because the lack of foot traffic over there. Obviously we don't have any quantitative data to back this up, but it definitely seems a little lighter over there.
Anyone have any thoughts on Marble Slab closing? or the East side of the street being less conducive to business?
