Gluten-Free Trading Company, 3116 S. Chase Ave., will close for good on Sunday, July 6.

Linda Kramer and John Shaw opened the gluten-free grocery store in 2000 and reported on it a few times, including a piece I wrote in 2012. 

Most likely, the abundance of gluten-free items available at chain grocery stores affected sales.

In 2010, the owners opened a location in Pewaukee, which will remain open.

A post on the Gluten-Free Trading Company's Facebook page today reads, "Over the past couple of years, changes in business conditions in Milwaukee have impacted the Milwaukee store’s financial viability. After much deliberation, we have decided to consolidate our business and focus on the Pewaukee store."

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
