Update: Bee's Knees Supply Company in Boston's Fort Point Seized by the State
[Ed note: This article was updated on January 5 to reflect the fact that a "seized" sign is now in the window of the place.]
A gourmet market in one of Boston's hottest neighborhoods is locked up and dark, and it is not yet known if/when it might reopen.
According to a Twitter post, Bee's Knees Supply Company in Fort Point appears to be closed, with a source telling us that it was shuttered all of last week as well as yesterday morning. Phone calls placed to the Farnsworth Street store over the past couple of days have gone directly to voicemail, and a check on its website indicates that it is down.
Bee's Knees first opened in Fort Point in March of 2013, while a second shop opened on Commonwealth Avenue in Allston two years later. The Fort Point shop apparently went up for sale in late 2015, while the Allston shop closed last summer.
As soon as we find out why the Fort Point location of Bee's Knees is closed, we will post an update here.
The address for Bee's Knees Supply Company in Fort Point is 12 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA.
[January 5 update: According to a Twitter post from @JeremyKrantz, there is now a "seized" sign out front at Bee's Knees, with the sign saying the store is in the possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts because of nonpayment of taxes.]
