In a Facebook post on Thursday, the restaurant indicated their lease is coming to an end and they will not be renewing. The shoppe thanked its loyal customer base.
Everything that has a beginning, has an end. This is the end. Thank you for 15 amazing years. Thank you for all of your loyal support. Thank you for allowing us to be your trusted hometown deli. Thank you for it all. It is with conflicted hearts that we announce the permanent closure of Halfmoon Sandwich & Salad Shoppe. We will be shutting our doors forever on Saturday, August 20 at 3 pm as our lease expires.We are so grateful.
