After more than 21 years in business, Chickie’s Italian Deli is closing at 1014 Federal St. on April 11.
The shop, which considers itself the originator of the veggie hoagie, was listed for sale last year. Now that they found a buyer for the property, Chickie’s will be moving on from this location.
While it was previously stated that owner Henry George would relocate the sandwich shop to a bigger location, according to The Insider, there are no immediate plans to reopen Chickie’s elsewhere.
The original listing price of this property was $1 million, before being decreased to $750,000 in January 2014 and finally selling for $500,000 this year.
The reason for selling the property is due to George’s divorce.
There will be a new food business coming into this space, though we don’t have details on that just yet.
Are you sad to see Chickie’s close?
