Woody’s Yogurt closes after more than two decades on Tiburon Peninsula
Lines stretched out the door and phones rang off the hook throughout the day Jan. 5 as residents sought out their last lick of frozen yogurt from Woody’s Yogurt Place, a fixture on the Tiburon Peninsula for 21 years that shut its doors for good on Sunday. Shop owner Michael “Woody” Woodson, 78, of Tiburon, who ran the businesses with 40-year-old son Brian, cited rising rent and soft winter business as the primary reasons for the closure. Woodson said annual rent at the business, which first opened on Tiburon’s Main Street in 1998 but relocated to the Strawberry Village Shopping Center in 2000, is set to rise to $105,000 from $100,000 per year, or $6.60 per square foot per month, a figure Woodson asserts was already double what he should be paying.
