Philadelphia’s Di Bruno Bros., renowned for its Italian cuisine, is opening a store in April in Wayne, writes Molly Given for Metro Philly.

The store will open at 375 West Lancaster Avenue in the Strafford Shopping Center.

Di Brunos is a staple in Philadelphia, with its gourmet cheeses, made-to-order sandwiches, and hand-made baked goods.

“For over 80 years and three generations, we’ve served the Philadelphia region and brought some of the world’s most exciting culinary experiences and delicious specialty products to our hometown,” said President Bill Mignucci Jr., third-generation owner and grandson of Danny Di Bruno. “This new location is an evolution of our beloved, homegrown shop with even more energy, expertise, and enthusiasm for all things edible.”
