Myers Famous Kosherie has been acquired by the Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Synagogue.
The well-known Leeds kosher delicatessen, Myers Famous Kosherie has been obtained by the Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Synagogue.
Now trading as The Moortown Deli, the deal significantly expands the kosher food interests of the synagogue, which also opened a bakery almost two years ago.
Leon Davidson, director of The Moortown Deli said: “We have ambitious plans for this business and hope to provide an excellent service to the Jewish community and beyond.”
With a management team in place, the range of goods offered will be increased considerably and plans are underway to supply goods not previously available in kosher food shops in the Leeds area. Everything in the store will be 100% kosher, and as well as foods from the UK, Israel and overseas, an extended range of bread, cakes and pastries from The Street Lane Bakery will also be offered.
There will also be a click-and-collect service as well as online ordering for home delivery. The store opening hours will be extended to include early mornings and late night shopping.
Leon, added: “We are delighted to be leading Leeds’ principal kosher deli into the next chapter of its story.”
Much like leading kosher stores in London and Manchester, the intention is to open a fresh deli counter for the first time in Leeds for many years, and will be implemented as soon as possible.
