Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe will close

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - The family owned Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe on Columbus Avenue in the South End announced it would close down.

The shop's owners made the announcement on Twitter. President Obama and other politicians have visited the sandwich shop, which has operated since the 1920s.

The owners said the restaurant has become a home to them, but that it is time to move on.

"I just thought I'd like to relax, read a book, go fishing when I want to," said owner Arthur Manjourides.

Charlie's will close its doors for good at the end of June.
