The shelves are a bit barren, but Cunha’s Country Grocery is still open for business one month after the owners announced the store would close for good.
The city’s iconic grocery store is now expected to remain open as the owners show off the property to prospective buyers or renters. On Thursday afternoon, one unidentified group was touring the store and measuring shelves to figure out if their inventory would be a good fit.
“Multiple” groups have expressed interest in the small-town grocery, according to its owners, the Carrubba family. No prospective buyer has yet made an offer.
The Carrubba family has said Cunha’s was losing money due to increased competition from grocery chains in Half Moon Bay.
