Hmmm ... I've been in SLC for 3.25 years now, and was not aware of Guthrie's history nor was I aware of it's "main" location downtown (at 156 E 200 South, although I've been to their Sugarhouse location at 721 E 2100 South) ... I'm gonna have to go check it out.

My in-laws live in New Bedford, and my father grew up there (in fact, my wife's step-grandmother lived around the corner from my dad, and went to school with his older brother and sister).

We plant to visit New Beffuhd in Novembuh, so this will be another shop I'll have to go investigate.

Great shop, founded by Oscar Juner, currently owned by Bradley Woehl.
