Sip-N-Glo Juicery Permanently Closes After Seven Years
On Sunday, the local juice company closed all three of their locations for good.
Sip-N-Glo Juicery, which has been whipping up fresh, fruit- and veggie-packed juices and smoothies for the past seven years, has permanently closed all locations as of Sunday, March 15th.
The news that they’d be shutting doors of their three locations came on Saturday morning, giving folks *just* enough time to stock up on their bottled protein shakes or juices (especially their CBD-infused “Glo Easy”), and enjoy one final taste of their made-to-order smoothies.
Owner Kristin Leslie says she had originally planned to close at the end of the month in order to focus on her growing family — she announced earlier this year that she and her husband are expecting their first child. The change of plans, she says, was catalyzed by the ever-evolving coronavirus news and protocols. “Due to the severity of COVID-19, we had to take the necessary precautions [and close early],” she says. She also wrote on her Instagram that “this is a chaotic time for all, and I needed to put my baby’s and self’s health and needs first.”

Sip-N-Glo opened their first store in Washington Square West in 2013. Two years later, they opened a second location in Rittenhouse, followed by a third in 2017. In addition to juices, smoothies, shakes, and wellness shots, the local juice company offered a detox juice cleanse and made-to-order wheatgrass shots, plus a free juice day once per year.
Leslie says that Philly welcomed her and her store with open arms since the beginning, and offered this message to her devoted Sip-N-Glo-ers: “Although this chapter is ending, I am excited for the next adventure and the unknown ways I can continue to support, grow and connect with our community and the city I love so much, Philadelphia.”
