Cook's Pantry, located on 16th Street in front of Trader Joe's, has been selling "Kitchenware to Inspire" for 5-years but an illness is forcing the owners to refocus their energy. Kitchen/baking tools, gourmet cookware, cutlery, and everything else in the store is marked down as they prepare to close for good.

The closing was explained on the store's Facebook page: "We are sad to say good bye to Cook’s Pantry in Rochester. Due to illness, we need to focus our time and efforts at home and on our other kitchen store and restaurants in Siren, WI . It has been a pleasure serving you all with your kitchen and cooking needs. Thank you for all the local support and memories."

No word on when they officially close for good. The store's going-out-of-business hours are: 9am-6pm Mon - Sat; 11am-5pm Sunday
