The deli on the corner of Campbell Street and Washington Street in Butchertown closed down suddenly in July. Disgruntled staff learned of the closing the day the small grocery closed for apparent renovations. Planned improvements included new lights, a new ceiling, and a few new fixtures; generally cleaning the place up. A tipster tells us now that the establishment may not be reopening next month as originally indicated.

The deli may be closed for good. Evidently, gentrification is sneaking from the East Village into Butchertown. As the neighborhood becomes wealthier, it is less accepting to bums hanging out on the corner. Repeated complaints about vagrants may have shuttered the doors forever. Will we see a new and improved stop for a sandwich and soft drink in coming weeks? Probably not… As of late August, no changes have been made to the property, but it is now bare and empty. Better get working soon!

  1. It hurts to see my grandpa’s store closed after so many years. I’m in Korea and did not know anything about this. I hope it opens again. I spent many good years going to this store with my great aunt chasing me around the shelves.
