Damn. Sanborns department store and restaurant has closed the downtown location in Guadalajara. I like Sanborns so much for the ostentatious elegance it offers at prices that a normal person can afford.
I met so many friends at the restaurant in this downtown store plus took all of my family there except my father. Brian and I loved the two for one cocktails that were available on certain days.
And, OMG, the bakery. Indescribably delicious.
Department stores Sanborns, Liverpool, Sears and Palacio de Hierro are all shedding employees due to the economic downturn. Sears in Mexico is different than in the USA. The stores are very fine.
