CHICAGO — Chicago’s Moo & Oink meat store chain is in bankruptcy and has shut its doors after 150 years. All four Moo & Oink stores closed Sept. 30 after a judge placed the company in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Located primarily in the city's South and West sides, the stores employed 200 people. A lawyer for the company's largest creditor says it plans to ask to take over Moo & Oink's assets to sell them. Meanwhile, an investor group hopes to buy the company and keep it intact.
