Ike’s Place to Relocate

Ikes Place to Relocate

Sandwich shop Ike’s Place will be moving out of its Stanford location on June 15 because of the expiration of its contract. According to Ike’s employee Victor Santiago, Ike’s lease period just ended. The new location of Ike’s Place is still in consideration, said Santiago. “They’re looking around here, Palo Alto, or Menlo Park,” Santiago said. Ike’s has not planned a closing event yet. “Right now, we’re just doing little promotions like the Ike boxes,” Santiago said. “We’re trying to do as much as we can while we’re still here.” Stanford students have expressed their sorrow for Ike’s move. The students have created an online petition to keep Ike’s at Stanford and exceeded their 1,000 signatures goal with 1,583 signatures. On April 26, Stanford students gathered on the Stanford campus with signs saying, ‘Bring back Ike’s!’ according to The Stanford Daily.
