what happened to Fox & Obel??

I'm in Chicago about once a year, and always enjoy a trip to Fox & Obel for lunch or to pick up a bread, cheese, and wine dinner for the hotel room. I was just there this week and was unpleasantly surprised by the state of the place. The produce section was a disaster: shriveled champagne mangoes, rock hard lychees, and sad sad peaches. I'm not sure, as I'm not there that often, but it also seemed like there were fewer offerings in the bakery. Did this place change owners? Management? Am I imagining things? Did I just hit them on the wrong day and all will be back to normal for my next trip?
