The Concord Cheese Shop Celebrates 45th Year
As The Cheese Shop in Concord, Massachusetts, celebrates its 45th anniversary, the Concord Journal sits down with owner Peter Lovis to discuss the busines of cheesemongering, from maintenance to mentors.
The Cheese Shop is celebrating its 45th year in Concord. Peter Lovis has owned this specialty store since 2003. From the moment he first stepped inside while traveling two decades ago, he has had a love affair with the shop, the customers and of course, the cheese. Peter is a cheese monger who takes great pride in his job.
“I simply love cheese, all kinds of cheese. I see cheese as a vehicle to please my customers. Where else can you have a job that can pleasure people two times? Customers get to taste and try the cheese in the store. I get to advise and serve them, and they take the cheese home, gain pleasure again and enjoy the tastes with their friends and family.”
