Cedar Market, exclusive dealer of Ipto s Tea, has reopened after about five months of closed doors. Or "grand opened," if the banners outside the front door are to be taken at their word. I'm not convinced the "grand" is deserved. The store looks pretty bare right now. I talked to one of the owners. He says he doesn't know what happened to the last crew. The best-stocked part of the store tonight is the beer refrigerator. To paraphrase the Lillian Gish character in "The Night of the Hunter," it's a hard world for little businesses.
