After 15 years, Sam’s Deli in Oysterbay is closing its doors for good on Tuesday, January 31.
“There are no words to thank all my customers,” says owner Samiha Costa.
“I’d like to thank you all for the support you have always given us. Everybody wanted us to survive.”
Costa first opened the deli in Mikocheni in 2002, but quickly moved to the current location in the Oysterbay Shopping Centre.
Costa says after years of 18 hour days trying to keep the deli a viable business, she’s taking much-needed time to re-connect with family.
Her husband’s cafe next to the deli will remain open.
