“Eat cheese, drink wine, and be merry!”
The Cheese Shop is a gourmand's Mecca for world class cheeses, gourmet foods and wines. They offers a variety of cheese, and delicious products made around the world, and with a couple of home grown companies. In 1973, a young couple, John & Nancy McCormick, tired of the corporate life, decided to start a business that was fun & enjoyable. Something that would fill all their senses, and something they could share with everyone. They even got two of Nancy's brothers, Michael & Neil, to join in the fun...and thus was the start of The Cheese Shop, a gourmand's Mecca for world class cheeses, gourmet foods and wines!! Our first store opened in 1973 at the old Valley Fair Shopping Center in San Jose, California. We opened our present location, in the Carmel Plaza, downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, Memorial weekend in 1975, selling our San Jose location in 1979 to concentrate our efforts here. We added enough room to create a warm, cozy family enviroment that locals as well as tourists from around the world can revel in and enjoy! I was lucky to join The Cheese Shop family in 1986, upon my return from travels in Europe, and prior to my scheduled return home to Honolulu, Hawai'i. Thirteen years later, I incorporated the business on our same Memorial anniversary, and today can proudly say that we have clients in all 50 states, and 20 countries. Through this web site, I invite you all to come share in the O'hana (family) that is "The" Cheese Shop, Carmel. Enjoy in sharing all the bounties that our store, the beautiful region of Monterey County, and the world offers!! And remember my motto: "Eat Cheese, Drink Wine, Live Life Happy!"
