Jelisejev’s shop is housed in an 18th-century building on Tverskaya Street.
Yeliseyev’s grocery store, which has served Muscovites for more than a hundred years, is threatened with closure, Russian media reported on Tuesday.
CEO of Yeliseyev Natalia Haritonova told news agency Tassi that the chain, which operates the store, will end cooperation with Yeliseyev in April.
According to Haritonova, negotiations are underway with several potential new partners. According to media reports, the deal would close on April 11th.
For several days now, social media has been complaining about the store’s empty shelves and deserted corridors.
Yeliseyev’s shop is housed in an 18th-century building on Tverskaya Street, just a few hundred meters from the Kremlin.
Wealthy merchant Grigori Jelisejev founded the trade in 1901. It was popular with the nobility because it sold European wines and cheeses as well as exotic fruits.
True to its historic past, the staff serves guests in a luxurious hall dressed in a classic white and burgundy uniform.
