The Woodside Deli & Catering Company closed its doors for the final time after serving the Montgomery County community for 75 years.
The original Woodside Deli in Silver Spring first opened its doors in 1947, before closing in Oct. 2019. The community staple moved to Rockville a short time later, officially opening in Dec. 2010. Popular items included the breakfast sandwich, the turkey club, and country fried chicken.
“When the pandemic began, Woodside like many other restaurants, was hit hard with countless obstacles,” wrote the owners in a Facebook post. “Although the pandemic is no longer what it once was, many of the impacts have since lingered.” Supply chain issues, drastic price increases for supplies, rent hikes, and staffing shortages were all factors in the decision, according to the post.
“Unfortunately, we could not overcome the impacts.” The owners thanked the community for its patronage and support throughout the years.
A yard sale will be held selling photos and memorabilia the deli has collected over the years. More information on the yard sale will be shared on the deli’s Facebook page.
