After nearly five decades of selling Ritter Sport bars and lingonberry jam in San Francisco’s Noe Valley, Lehr’s German Specialties is closing its one-of-a-kind shop on Church Street. A sign recently posted on the door announced the closure and thanked the neighborhood for its loyalty and patronage.
Owner Brigitte Lehr told SFGATE she plans to stay open until the last merchandise is sold. “What are you going to do?” said Lehr. “After 48 years, we have to end it.”
