After 50 years, Riesterer’s is closing its Garden City location as of Sunday, Sept. 15. According to an email sent to customers, the lease was up on the store at 96 Seventh Street and the rent increase would have been “substantial.”

Riesterer’s original location, founded in 1931, is less than two miles away (with free parking) at 282 Hempstead Ave., West Hempstead, 516-481-7636, rbakery.com.
