Nickel City Cheese & Mercantile Opens in Elmwood Village

By Nina Barone

Nickel City Cheese & Mercantile, a full service, European inspired, neighborhood cheese and specialty food store, recently opened in the Elmwood Village. In 2010, the Elmwood Village Association conducted a consumer needs survey and identified a cheese shop as one of the top five businesses people would like to see open on Elmwood Avenue. Respondents identified the need for five specific niche businesses: cheese store, hardware store, sporting goods store, butcher shop and seafood store.

Located at 423 Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo, Nickel City Cheese & Mercantile’s current hours of operation are Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; and closed on Sunday.

Episode 5 of Eat It Up, with Dino Pinelli (Co-owner of Charlie O'Brien's)

When I first was thinking up the idea of Buffalo Eats and what it could possibly be, one of the first people I talked to was my friend Dino Pinelli Jr.  He’s the co-owner of one of my favorite bars in Buffalo (Charlie O’Briens) but he’s also one of the proudest Buffalo-ians that I know.  In case you couldn’t tell, that is a tattoo of city hall on his arm.  He was the second person that we had visit the podcast studio and we talked about the potential of South Buffalo, learning how to run a bar/restaurant at 24, throwing a successful 80′s party and much more.
