A family-run business that has been on East Passyunk Avenue for years is about to close its doors permanently.
Saturday, July 23 is the last day to visit Avenue Cheese Shop, located at 1724 E. Passyunk Ave.
A sign posted in the window of the shop reads:
Dear Valued Customers,
We regret to inform you that Saturday July 23, 2016 is the last day we will be open for business. Thank You for the support over the years. You will be missed but not forgotten. The friendships and memories that were made will last a lifetime.
Sincerely, Sam and Rene
