CARMEL – Shapiro’s Delicatessen will soon close its Carmel location.
The company announced that the sandwich shop at 918 S. Rangeline Rd. would shut down, effective Monday, June 17.
“Closing the Carmel location was a strategic decision allowing Shapiro’s Delicatessen to refocus our commitment to our downtown restaurant and continue to serve Indianapolis with the high-quality, delicious Kosher-style food for which we are famous,” said Brian Shapiro, president of Max Shapiro, Inc.
The downtown Indianapolis location at 808 S. Meridian St. and the airport restaurant at gate B14 will not be affected, Shapiro said.
“My family and I worked very hard for more than a decade to sustain the Carmel restaurant and we sincerely invite our Carmel patrons to join us at Shapiro’s Delicatessen downtown,” Shapiro added.
Shapiro’s first opened its doors in 1905 as a grocery store. It grew into a restaurant and delicatessen in the mid-1930s, becoming a staple of downtown Indianapolis. The Carmel location had been open for 12 years.
