Goodbye Cookie Jar building

It appears that the stretch of Sixth Street between Green and Daniel is continuing to change, with the demolition of the little building that held The Cookie Jar from 1980 to 2018. Thanks to SP writer Tom Ackerman for bringing this to our attention via the Champaign Urbana History Facebook group.

One of my college roommates worked at The Cookie Jar, which is a pretty solid bonus in a college roommate.

If you’d like to reminisce a bit, check out this nice little story in The Daily Illini from 2014.
