Comings & Goings: Oscar’s Deli to Close

Oscar’s Deli, a Westport Main Street mainstay for 42 years, will close Monday, according to an announcement tonight on its Facebook page.

It said on Sunday morning customers will share memories and stories about the deli and its owner, Lee Papageorge, who is battling lung cancer.

The closing follows by two years the closing of another Main Street mom and pop eatery, Westport Pizzeria, after 45 years. But it moved to a new location on Post Road East.

Rumors of Oscar’s closing had circulated for months when word spread of the illness of its owner.
