Penzeys, the beloved spice store at 233 Market Street in Old City, wants to keep its doors open, but it could “use a few more customers,” per an email that went out this week from owner Bill Penzey. The Market Street location opened in 2020 after it vacated The Bourse.
Then Covid-19 hit.

They have until February to decide whether to renew the lease or not. Stay tuned.
