A grocery store and cafe that has been a mainstay of the Sam Hughes neighborhood for nearly a century has closed.
The owner of the building that houses Rincon Market in Tucson has placed a lock-out notice on the door of the historic neighborhood shop. The notice says the market failed to pay rent and defaulted on its lease.
The market closed its in-house cafe in March, according to its Facebook page. A later post announced the grocery store would close for the month of April. That was the market's last update.
Owner Peter Wilke purchased the market in 2018. He also owns Time Market on University Avenue. He could not be reached for comment Friday.
