Rosenfeld’s Jewish Delicatessen closes its doors at Salisbury Airport for good

SALISBURY, Md. – Rosenfeld’s Jewish Deli at the Salisbury Airport is closing its doors for good. Owner Warren Rosenfeld says that even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the location was pretty much breaking even in terms of profit.

Owner Warren Rosenfeld says that the significant decrease in air travel because of COVID-19 was the final nail in the coffin for the airport location. “It hasn’t been open since March 16th. When all the restrictions came down on March 16th we felt we really had no alternative but to close it because we knew air traffic was going to be all but non-existent for a while,” said Rosenfeld.

Rosenfeld says he wanted to make a final decision amid these difficult times, instead of stringing the airport along on their plans. “We just really felt that instead of stringing the airport along and not letting them know what our intentions were, it would just be best to let them know we didn’t plan on reopening any time,” said Rosenfeld.

But the good news is that there’s still some hope for Rosenfeld’s fans in Salisbury. “I do have some hope of perhaps relocating within Salisbury proper. I’m looking at some things in that regard. I have no promises regarding that. But I am looking at something that I think could be possible in terms of relocation within Salisbury,” said Rosenfeld.

Rosenfeld says that overall, his other locations in Ocean City and Rehoboth Beach are doing pretty well. He says he’s hopeful that they’ll continue to operate smoothly throughout the pandemic, and is thankful for all the customers supporting Rosenfeld’s.
