Hard cheese for Towson; Iggies is staying in Mount Vernon

Iggies won't be moving to Towson after all. When word got out in June that Iggies was moving to a new location in Riderwood Station, co-owner Peter Wood said the deal was "95 percent" certain but that there were a few zoning issues to work out. They didn't.

"Everything happens for a reason," said Iggies co-owner Lisa Heckman, "and I'm really happy we're staying." Even if Iggies doesn't stay forever in its current location on Calvert Street, it won't be moving far, Heckman said. "Mount Vernon has been very good to us, and we're going to stay in Mount Vernon."

On first hearing of Iggies' plans to relocate, from what appeared to be a successful city location to a smaller suburban one that the owners admitted might turn out to be less profitable, some were nonplused.
