A decades-old suburban food shop known in part for its subs has shut down.
A check on the place on Sunday showed that A&A Deli in Arlington is no longer in business, with signs out front simply saying "closed" and the interior of the Mass. Ave. shop looking like it was in the process of being cleared out. Last week, a thread within The Arlington List Facebook group page mentioned that the store was indeed getting ready to shutter, though a specific opening date had not been confirmed at the time, while a call placed on Friday indicated that the store would be open on Saturday.
A&A Deli, which had in business since at least the mid-1980s, featured a variety of sandwiches, pasta dishes, pizza, and more, with one of its most popular items being its steak and cheese sub.
The address for this now-closed food shop in Arlington was: A&A Deli, 1042 Mass.Ave., Arlington, MA, 02476.
