The L train isn’t the only thing Williamsburg residents will soon have to temporarily forego. For the last decade, Bedford Cheese Shop has been the go to fromage spot for snacky Brooklynites. But the shop will soon shutter, as it moves to larger location in the neighborhood.

Bedford Cheese Shop is leaving its pricey Bedford Avenue and North 4th Street location for a larger venue at 265 Bedford Avenue at North 1st Street, according to Gothamist.

Some have speculated that the arrival of Whole Foods in the neighborhood may have pushed the small shop out. But not so, says owner Charlotte Kamin.

“I never felt threatened by it, which I know was baffling, but I didn’t really feel anything about it, to be honest,” Kamin told Gothamist. “At first I thought, ‘Well, at least it’s literally across the corner.’ People are more inclined to walk across the street to get more groceries. New York has a very European, provincial model. People go to the bakery for their bread, the butcher for their meat.”

The shop will close August 22nd. [Gothamist]Christopher Cameron
