Nickel City Cheese & Mercantile, a full service, European inspired, neighborhood cheese and specialty food store, recently opened in the Elmwood Village. In 2010, the Elmwood Village Association conducted a consumer needs survey and identified a cheese shop as one of the top five businesses people would like to see open on Elmwood Avenue. Respondents identified the need for five specific niche businesses: cheese store, hardware store, sporting goods store, butcher shop and seafood store.
Located at 423 Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo, Nickel City Cheese & Mercantile’s current hours of operation are Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; and closed on Sunday.
