PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Desserts said goodbye to its Main Street store location after two years of getting to know its customers. It’s now in search of a new permanent home, which came sooner than expected.
Shelley Marshall, owner and operator of Park City Desserts, moved to this location two years ago during the COVID-19 pandemic and told TownLift about the challenges her business faces in light of the recent two-week eviction notice. She said, “it’s difficult and unfair … we would have made different choices with ordering, etc., and had movers, and possibly even a new place lined up, had we been given the notice that we needed.”
The OP Rockwell Building is currently owned by 268 Main St, LLC out of New York, and the building has some big changes in the works.
PC Desserts is being replaced by luxury western apparel company Kemo Sabe, slotted to take over the entire main level of the building; meaning its neighbor, J-Go Gallery, will be shopping as well. The upcoming changes are frustrating for Marshall, as she felt in the dark, mentioning that “Kemo Sabe was apparently in negotiations for 3 months before we were served the eviction notice.”
Park City Desserts may not have the next steps for its new storefront set in stone as of yet, but one thing is for sure, according to Marshall, the business itself isn’t going anywhere. She still has a commercial bakery in full use, which customers can order online, while the search continues for a permanent location in Park City.
