Consumers look to spice up home meals in the recession

The Spice House on North Wells Street hasn’t needed a special recipe to deal with the recession.

Traffic to the Illinois– and Wisconsin-based specialty spice store isn’t slowing, and sales are equally brisk among the business’s three main customer groups: restaurants, in-store and online.

On any given day, all six employees bustle about the shop, slowing only to offer guidance to customers filtering in and out.

In fact, nearly a dozen customers in the store one Tuesday morning say they had shopped there before. This loyal following may have prevented The Spice House from noticing any drop in sales, even as consumers tightened their budgets on other items.

“The high-end retailers, when it comes to food, have been weathering the storm well,” says Scott Testa, an economics professor at Cabrini College.
