Circle Food Store On Brink Of Closing

News Headlines Getty Images

Circle Food Store in Treme is on the brink of closing.

The historic store opened in 1938, but was temporarily closed for four years following Hurricane Katrina. After an $8 million renovation thanks to bank loans, tax credits and city-provided grants, Circle Food Store was able to re-open four years ago.

Debt is now plaguing the business and the family is in a dispute with each other over embezzlement claims.

The owner says at this point, it might be impossible to keep the doors open.
