Just got off the phone and the staff confirmed that one of Highland Park Village’s oldest tenants, Cooter’s Village Camera, will be closing its doors Saturday.
Sorry to see Cooter’s go, but admittedly I haven’t bought anything from them in years. But I’m sure some people still use their nighttime film drop for their Kodacolor disk film cameras.
“Cooter’s Village Camera informed Highland Park Village management last week that they would be closing their doors on Saturday, August 13th. The locally owned and operated retailer opened in Highland Park Village in 1941 and was the center’s second longest standing merchant.
“ ‘We are saddened at the news of Cooter’s closing their doors and wish the Cooter family all the best in their future endeavors,’ says Stephen Summers, managing director and director of leasing of HP Village Partners, LP.
“In a recent letter to Highland Park Village management, Kirk Cooter explained several reasons behind the family’s decision to close.”
Yes, that’s how the statement ends. I guess we’ll have to call Kirk for a list of those reasons.
