A couple of prominent local businesses have shut down in recent weeks. Corner Gourmet
at 1474 W. 86th St. apparently has closed. The phone numbers for both the shop and owner Scott Justvig are disconnected. Also, Steck Plumbing
, a neighborhood institution for the near-north side, closed last month. The shop at 4923 N. College Ave. had been in business since 1912. Heard of any other departures?
