Cunha’s Country Grocery will have new ownership in the coming months, and the buyers say they’re planning to keep the mom-and-pop feel while investing in the prominent market in the middle of downtown Half Moon Bay.

Hassan Naim Husari, who owns a market, a gas station and liquor store in the Bakersfield area, confirmed this week that the Khoury family agreed to sell the business to him. He said there is still a lengthy transaction process ahead. The Khourys bought the building for $2.5 million in 2013. Owner Sam Khoury, who has operated numerous successful grocery stores in the Bay Area, said he’s planning on retiring soon.
