MEDFORD, Ore. -- Sophia's Soup Factory is closing after 10 years of business in Medford. The business does not plan to relocate.
Sophia's Soup Factory told NewsWatch12 it could not come to a lease agreement with the owners, LBG Realty. LBG Realty told NewsWatch12 Sophia's Soup Factory tried to sell the business, but couldn't find someone to take the spot. LBG Realty says it sent a lease to the business that they both agreed on, and never received a signature back.
Now LBG Realty is working to bring more businesses to The Village at the Medford Center. Right now signs are up for two new businesses, a boutique called Ella Lane and a skin care studio called Adorn.
"There's going to be a new dance studio, Panache Studio, over next to the UPS store," says Allen Purdy, of SB James Construction.
Sophia's Soup Factory says its last day of business will be on April 30th.
