Memphis grocery store closing after 33 years

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - After 33 years in business, Montesi’s Grocery is closing.

The Summer Avenue store will soon shut its doors, but there's no official closing date yet.

Everything in the store is 40 percent off.

Store owners said they’ll miss the friendships they’ve made over the years and thanked their customers for the support.

Longtime customers say the store will be greatly missed when the doors close for the last time.

“The people that live around here because they didn't have anywhere else to go,” said longtime shopper Mery Gibson. “You can walk here, get your groceries, carry the basket home, bring it back.

The owners say they will stay open until everything inside is gone, which will likely be the end of October.
