WOODLAND HILLS (CBSLA) — One of the San Fernando Valley’s oldest delis is set to serve its last corned beef sandwich.
Jerry’s Famous Deli at 21857 Ventura Blvd. in Woodland Hills will close its doors Saturday after more than four decades serving bagels and lox, matzo ball chicken rice soup, and other favorites.
While there was no official announcement, customers reportedly learned of the closing from a note posted on the restaurant’s doors that read, “(W)e regret to inform you, this Jerry’s location will be closing its doors” on Oct 16.
The closure marks the fifth Jerry’s location in the Los Angeles area to close in recent years after locations in West Hollywood, Westwood, and Costa Mesa were shuttered, with only the Westwood location being unprofitable.
Longtime customers took to social media to lament the wave of Jerry’s Deli closures.
Locations in Marina del Rey, Encino and Studio City will remain open.
