It’s the saddest news since Broadway lost Grubwich. CHS got a few tips on the closure but tipster Scott put it best:
It looks like Gyro World abruptly shut down over the weekend. Some of the kitchen equipment is gone already but there’s no information posted out front, and the QFC employees I asked didn’t know what happened. Bummer!
CHS found a shuttered restaurant Monday. We’re checking in with Gyro World’s owner Morteza Chini to see what more we can learn about the decision to shutter.
According to filings with the City of Seattle, the Broadway Market shopping complex’s management group is readying plans for construction on the “north end of the first floor. The budget is listed at $265,000.
Businesses on that end of the complex included Gyro World, Broadway Video and the Broadway Shoe Repair.
A quick check-in with the shoe repair guys revealed they’re staying put and will be part of what’s next. “We’ve got a very long lease,” CHS was told.
Meanwhile, work is also underway to overhaul the Broadway Market QFC with the addition of more self-serve checkouts, a Murray’s Cheese counter, and more changes including a new space for the internal Starbucks.
We’re reaching out to management group Madison Marquette to ask about the construction. Last March, the group announced a $14 million investment in the shopping center.
UPDATE: We’re reminded to include that the BECU branch could also be part of the construction work in that area of the market.
