A FroYo Fave.
The loyal fans who embraced the tangy, organic frozen yogurt and the fresh toppings will be sad to learn that Harmony Frozen Yogurt on Laurel Street has closed its doors. From the person I spoke with today, slower sales and increased competition from other establishments on Laurel Street took its toll on what was a mainstay of the downtown shopping district of San Carlos. It’s probably not too much of a stretch to think that they lost a big chunk of business when Tutti Frutti opened shop on San Carlos Avenue.
This flies in the face of the common misconception that every business on the hot section of north Laurel Street is a guaranteed home run. The more shops that open along this stretch, the more it creates competition for the established businesses, regardless if they are direct competition or not.
There’s no word yet on what will take over this prime spot on Laurel Street, or if any of the other Harmony locations will be impacted. But it certainly is a bummer to see something so uniquely San Carlos quietly slip away.
