The Mix, a frozen yogurt "treatery" located at 3536 Alameda de las Pulgas in West Menlo Park, is closing Friday, Oct. 19. As a last day special, the store will serve medium yogurts in Mix mugs (while they last) as memorabilia.
Owners Jamie Schein and Susannah Albright opened their frozen yogurt shop in 2010. Both women were Menlo Park residents, active in local schools and the community. Ms. Albright moved to Florida in August.
An e-mail from the partners to The Almanac says: "Time has flown by and, as is typical in our fast-paced community, a lot has changed. ... As we evaluated the options for our partnership going forward we received a business offer that we have decided to accept." The women did not divulge information about the new business, but said it was not another yogurt shop.
In the June 2 , 2010, issue of The Almanac, the article "Frozen yogurt face-off" raised the question: "Is this town big enough for four yogurt stores?" The other three: Wildberry at 325 Sharon Park Drive, Miyo Yogurt at 842 Santa Cruz Ave., and Yogurt Stop at 401 El Camino Real.
Kathy Schrenk commented on the Almanac's Facebook page: "Still four in MP": Tutti Frutti, 888 Willow Road in Menlo Park.
