Saturday’s Glen Park Merchants Sidewalk Sale was the perfect chance for Cheese Boutique Cheese Boutique owners Rachid (“Rick”) and Nada Malouf to sell down their stock as they prepare to move one door up to 660 Chenery, into the space currently occupied by the Dalere Beauty Salon. The salon will move into a smaller space in back of the building.
The shift came about when 666 Chenery St., the space occupied by the cheese shop since 1993, was sold late in 2011. The new owners are Dean and Jeanne Eriksen, who plan to open a “self-service” membership fitness gym on the same plan as their Bernal Heights location, Fit Bernal Fit.
The Malouf’s worked on Saturday to sell as much merchandise as possible so they wouldn’t have to carry it out and to the new store. By all accounts, it was a major success.
Many other merchants on the Chenery/Diamond access took part in the Sidewalk Sale, an event coordinated by the Glen Park Merchants Association and part of San Francisco Small Business Week.
