Montgomery gothic food and drink company Montgomery has closed its doors for good.
The company announced on Wednesday that it had made the decision to close the shop and that it was closing its doors.
Montgomery, which was founded in 1989 and had a strong presence in Maryland, has been in the business for more than 40 years.
In 2018, the company’s parent company, the Montgomery Group, acquired the company from its current owners.
The Montgomery Group announced the closure on its website on Tuesday.
The owner of Montgomery Gourmet Food Store, Joe Miller, told the Times of the Times-Herald in a statement that he was “extremely saddened to learn that Montgomery has shut down its Montgomery Gothic Food and Drink Store.
I am proud of what we have done here in Montgomery and look forward to returning the business to the people of Montgomery.”
Miller added that Montgomery would continue to operate Montgomery GOTHIC Food and Gift Shop.
In a statement, the city of Montgomery, Maryland, said it was not able to comment on the closure.
The decision comes amid heightened concern over foodborne illness and deaths linked to the seasonal and seasonal seasonality of the food industry.
In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the results of a study that found that the number of people hospitalized for foodborne illnesses linked to seasonality had increased by more than 50 percent between 2009 and 2016.
In Maryland, foodborne outbreaks have increased more than 600 percent from 2011 to 2016.
Montgomery said it had no further comment at this time.
