On his Facebook page, Ric Addy says:
"Thank You Micah Uetricht - Chicago Reader! Thank You to ALL the Fans & Friends of Shake Rattle & Read - What an amazing 50th Anniversary Sale + 64th Birthday Party for me. I get by with a little help from my friends ....LOVE YOU ALL!Here's the Reader article Ric mentions. Folks, if you know someone who wants to take over an Uptown institution and keep it around, contact Ric ASAP.
Yes, I am actively looking for someone who wants to buy my business and relocate it - otherwise I will be closing the shop sometime in May or June of 2016!"
