Angelozzi’s closes

A unique Sylvan Lake sandwich shop closed its doors last week.

A unique Sylvan Lake sandwich shop closed its doors last week.

Angelozzi’s, specializing in “authentic Montreal smoked meat,” opened in Varsity Plaza on 46 Street in the fall of 2012, and served its final sandwich last Friday.

Marilee Littmann, who co-owned the deli-style restaurant when it closed, said management could no longer afford to sustain the business.

“We’re not getting enough people through the doors … and unfortunately we can’t afford to subsidize it,” she said. “We thought we would get beach traffic in the summer that would hold (us) through to the winter, but unfortunately that never materialized.

“You see people walking by with their coolers and stuff going to the beach, but they don’t stop in.”

Nonetheless, Littmann, who assumed part ownership in March 2013, assured the restaurant had a good run — thanks to its loyal customer base.

“We would like to stress that we appreciate all that (our customers) gave to us over the last three years,” she said. “They certainly did support us very well.”
