Melissa Guerra Bids Adios to the Pearl

The papel picado is coming down. The remaining molcajetes and molinillos going into boxes. And the hot pink, vintage fridge is being shipped to a buyer in Galveston. At the end of September, the colorful cocina store at the Pearl, Melissa Guerra, will close its doors for good.

Guerra, the store’s namesake and owner, is not renewing her lease on the space she’s occupied since the former brewery was renovated and opened. But it was a choice forced upon her as much by the “Amazon effect” as her own desire to pursue passions beyond the kitchen.

“It’s been a great journey – that’s the part that’s sad,” Guerra said, talking with the Rivard Report Thursday evening from the back office of her shop, a space filled with packing boxes and some items ready to be shipped out. “But going online makes sense. The same people who are online are the same ones outfitting their kitchens right now.”
