(PLAINVIEW, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) presented a Nassau County Legislature Citation to Sherri Banks, former owner of the Regal Kosher Deli and Caterers on Friday, Nov. 4 to thank her and the Weiss family for 55 years of serving the Plainview community.
While the Weiss family had previously made the tremendously difficult decision to close their doors on Sunday, Nov. 6, the grand finale weekend became a grand reopening instead. Instead of shutting its doors, the beloved destination for knishes, sandwiches and all sorts of kosher noshes is carrying on thanks to an outpouring of love from the community, a landlord agreeing to help with the rent, and a Regal Deli employee who stepped up to buy the business.
“It is absolutely wonderful to see the community rally around the Regal Deli and empower this beloved Plainview institution to continue a tradition that the Weiss family built over the course of the last six decades,” Legislator Drucker said. “We wish you all the best in this exciting new chapter and encourage everyone to support the local small businesses that add so much character to our neighborhoods.”
