According to a report in today’s Press Herald, DiPietro’s sandwich shop on Cumberland Ave will be closing their doors as of August 18. The shop was founded by Warren and Grace DiPietro in 1944.
A banner hanging outside says, “Thanks for your loyalty. We will be closing to enjoy retirement. Come in and savor one of our famous Italians because, as Joey used to say, you’ve eaten the rest, now try the best.”
Joey is the late Joseph DiPietro, who took over the store from his parents in 1966. He died in 2003.
One comment on “DiPietro’s Closing after 69 Years”
This is sad news. I’ve gotta make sure to stop in there for one last Italian.
