Saying Goodbye to the Red Door

A message from Pete & Emily
It is with great sadness that we share that we will be closing the Red Door at the end of our current lease, and our last day of business will be Sunday, March 8th.
We take our stewardship of this historic building and business seriously, but we just aren’t able to make it work financially. We notified our team in person today and will be doing anything we can to support them in this transition.
We are grateful for you, and each and every person who has come through our doors – whether customer, supplier or team member – and will miss being a part of our wonderful Fremont community.
Please join us often between now and March 8th to raise a glass and celebrate the 31 years we’ve had together.
With gratitude,
Pete and Emily
