According to towntopics.com, the longtime owners of Landau's on Nassau Street in Princeton have decided to retire.
Towntopics.com says that while age is the primary reason brothers Robert and Henry Landau have decided to retire (both men are in their 70's), the COVID-19 pandemic is also a factor.
Landau's history is chronicled on its website. The store originally opened in Jersey City in 1914 and remained there until moving to Brooklyn in 1919.
Landauprinceton.com says that Robert and Henry's parents moved the store to Witherspoon Street in Princeton in 1955, where it resided for 9 years. From there, it moved to 114 Nassau Street after spending 33 years at that address, the store moved one more time to 102 Nassau.
The Landau brothers told towntopics.com that it hopes to find a buyer that will keep the store open.
