"As some of you have already noticed, we have closed our store at The Mall at Fairfield Commons after 27 years," the owners of the Pretzel Fest & Popcorn Pizzazz shop said in a Facebook post. "Thank you to all our loyal customers, friends, and family who have supported us over these many years."

Pretzel Fest still operates a location at the Kenwood Towne Centre in suburban Cincinnati. A manager at that store declined comment this morning on the Fairfield Commons closure.

Leanne Rubosky, general manager of the Mall at Fairfield Commons, said, “Tenants come and go, and that has always been the case at The Mall at Fairfield Commons. When a tenant leaves, it provides an opportunity for us to add something new. We plan to announce an exciting new tenant for this space in the near future.”
