We saw the for sale sign going up on Tuesday and we confirmed it on Wednesday: The family that owns La Perla Mexican Delicatessen, a fixture in downtown Richmond since 1949, is selling the building.
The shop at Fourth Street and Nevin Avenue is still popular — its Facebook page has just under 2,600 “Likes” — but after more than 60 years as a family-run business, the time has come to do other things say members of the Ponce family.
Folks who want to get a last burrito should be aware that the shop will close when the building is sold or the end of the year, whichever comes first.
We’re working on a story about La Perla for next week and invite your comments and memories on this page or by emailing them to ctreadway(at)bayareanewsgroup.com
