C’est Cheese reopens as “Cheese Shop Santa Barbara”

Last July Kathryn and Michael Graham announced the closure of their C’est Cheese store at 827 Santa Barbara Street after 16 years in business. The Santa Barbara Independent reports that, thanks to a renegotiated outstanding loan, on October 1st the couple reopened the business at the same address with a new business name: Cheese Shop Santa Barbara. The new fromagerie  employs almost all of the same staff, and focuses on what brought the Grahams to the business in the first place: top-shelf cheese from around the world; a range of charcuterie, some made in-house; and artisanal foods and drinks to round it all out. The Cheese Shop Santa Barbara will remain pick-up only until the pandemic restrictions are eased and will eventually restart their catering service. Thanks to readers Andrea, Dick, and ItsNotBob for the tips!

    It shows when multiple parties are willing to compromise it can be a win win.

    With that said please look at the pros and cons of prop 15. Most commercial leases NNN meaning property taxes go directly to tenants. This means those tax increases will go straight to the business owner.
