Yet another store closing up in the South Austin development Lamar Union over on South Lamar: Zilker juice bar and healthy food shop Juice Society. Its last day on 1100 South Lamar Boulevard was on Monday, September 30.

Juice Society’s flagship store shutter happened so the company could concentrate on growing its retail operations, or as owner Danielle Sobel wrote on Instagram: “a bigger focus on our retail partners, more product innovation, pop ups, activations, [and] community.”

Sobel began Juice Society as a farmers market stand, selling bottled juices in 2015. She opened the storefront in April 2016, adding on superfood-packed smoothies and bowls like yogurt parfaits, chia seed pudding, and avocado banana mousse. She also owns and operates an organic farm Flycatcher Farms in Mustang Ridge.

It seems like the South Austin development, anchored by the Alamo Drafthouse, has been struggling to hold onto stores and restaurants. Recently, Barley Bean’s market/restaurant Arista Rosso closed up, and it looks like the company’s neighboring spot in the development Connection Pizza + Bar has been locked out of the premises during its renovations. Other shutters include Vox Table, El Burro, and Cantine.
