Norman Kornbleuth, the owner of the well-stocked cookware retailer, is retiring. Per the Times:
“I’ve been in this business for 40 years,” Mr. Kornbleuth said on Thursday. “I’m now 72; my wife has health issues. It’s time.”
Mr. Kornbleuth said that his two daughters were not interested in running the business and that his efforts to sell the company fell through. He has yet to decide the date when the store will close its doors for good.
Kornbluth, however, didn't completely rule out staying away from the retail world, telling the Times that he might open a small knife shop sometime after Broadway Panhandler closes.
