Pusateri’s is closing its Yorkville store next month due to the “changing retail landscape,” a representative at the gourmet grocer confirmed.

The retailer opened the Bloor-Yorkville store in 2003 as its second location. 

Its smallest store featured cafe seating and an outdoor patio, prepared foods (including à la carte breakfast and brunch menus) and, of course, a selection of gourmet groceries, such as in-house dry-aged premium beef, fresh pastries and breads, local and imported cheese, produce and a selection of fine olive oils, chocolates and pantry items.

Pusateri’s 57 Yorkville Avenue location will officially close at the end of March. The grocer’s three other locations (Avenue Road, Bayview Village, and the Saks Food Hall by Pusateri’s Eaton Centre) remain open. A fourth location in Toronto’s Little Italy neighbourhood is slated to open this year.

“Naturally the welfare of our employees is a top concern, we are committed to them by offering our entire team relocation positions within our company for uninterrupted employment,” the brand representative said. “We are deeply thankful to the Yorkville community for two decades of creating wonderful memories with us at this neighbourhood Pusateri’s. We look forward to seeing them again through our other locations.”
