Infinite Soups accepts only cash. But now it's making a concession for gift certificates – namely, valid gift certificates from restaurants that have gone out of business.
Responding to the closure of Stadium Bistro and reports that some people can't redeem their gift cards from the restaurant, the tiny soup shop says it will honor, dollar for dollar, any gift certificate from any defunct restaurant, up to $50.
"It's just the whole sense of hospitality," said Infinite Soups co-owner Wendy Clapp. "That's what we do: We feed people. Just because a place goes out of business doesn't mean you should lose a gift. If you're holding a gift certificate that was a gift from somebody that was wishing you well and wishing you to go out and have a nice meal, we want you to do that."
Clapp herself has a gift certificate to a local restaurant. She said she wants to use it before that restaurant goes out of business.
Never miss a local story.
Clapp said Infinite Soups will accept gift certificates or cards from any shuttered restaurant. She said she has no way of verifying whether the cards are valid but will honor them all.
"I don't think of people trying to rip us off," Clapp said. "We're such a little soup shop. I don't think anyone's given us grief."
