Sad news out of Little Italy, especially for cheese lovers. The Cheese Store of San Diego, which opened its sweet retail shop and bistro in early 2015, will shutter on Sunday, February 26 and will be replaced by a new concept and ownership. In a newsletter to customers, owner Marci Flores cited the challenges of small business as part of the reason behind the closure and shared, “To make a novel a short story, we felt fortunate to have an offer on the table and accepted it in order to relieve us of a heavy financial burden and provide a bit more balance into our lives.”

The Cheese Store, which started as a farmer’s market vendor, will also discontinue its presence at The Little Italy Mercato next month. Flores, who founded The Cheese Store with husband Aaron, will continue to be involved with the incoming tenant, saying “I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work closely with the new owner on the next concept in the same space. I am super excited about it and will share it with you soon. Yes, it involves cheese, wine, food and lots of it! Renovations of the space begin next month and we will hope to reopen in April.”
