Canter’s Deli at Tivoli Village has closed.
In a statement issued Monday morning, Tivoli Village general manager Philip Knott said the deli, which has roots in Los Angeles dating to 1931, had been ousted because of nonpayment of rent for four months and “poor management of the operation.”
Kevin Jeffers, managing partner of Immco Investments, license holder of Canter’s Las Vegas, said lack of foot traffic was a problem.
“Tivoli Village failed to keep sales promises made three years ago for significant traffic related to new retail shops committed to their space that never materialized,” Jeffers said in an email to the Review-Journal. “Phase 2 where Canter’s is located is a virtual ghost town after 5 p.m. on weekdays.”
The closing doesn’t affect Canter’s Strip location.
“Our operation in (The) Linq Promenade is very robust and profitable with no plans to cease operation,” Jeffers said.
The Tivoli Village location opened last fall, after months of delays..
