Not your typical grocery store is on the move locations from its restaurant in Gilbert Town Square to a building in the Heritage Quarter behind the Farmhouse Restaurant and facing the Gilbert Water Tower.

W Rieth, commonly referred to as Chief W, has closed the old location at 1166 S. Gilbert Road, Ste. 101, Gilbert, on May 26 and plans to reopen around July 12 at the new location, 228 N. Gilbert Road, Gilbert.

Rieth said the deli has been impacted by the pandemic and a number of businesses are closing in the back of Gilbert Town Square, where the deli once stood. However, Christ Church Gilbert, which is adjacent to the former NYT Deli site, is expanding and has offered to take over the remaining months of NYT Deli’s lease.

Meanwhile, Rieth said the owners of Farmhouse Restaurant had already spoken to her about doing something out of their back building.

“But I had nothing to do with it,” he said. “But now I do.”

Rieth said the updated business plan will be to run a wine and beer bar with charcuterie boards and hoagie sandwiches at the back of the farm while serving hot sandwiches from the food truck, which will be parked near the building.

“The mobile sector has saved our lives,” he said.

He said he would continue to employ a number of special needs workers and possibly even increase the workforce.
