They first made the announcement via their Facebook page on Aug. 19. Check out the emotional post below

As someone whose lived around the corner from this deli for most of my life, this one hurts. It's never not been there, as far as my memory goes. There are so many memories  experienced there, as you can see from the hundreds of comments!

"I am so sorry to hear this. I have so many amazing memories from there as a kid. Thank you for always having all of the candy, pizza, and ice cream a kid could ever want!" said one Facebook user.

"Thank you for being a part of the community for so many years with great service and pizza/sandwiches and water ice! We will miss you!" said another.
And hundreds more comments just like that! We loved this place.

As for myself, I can remember sitting on the ice cream stand patio as a little girl eating ice cream with my mom and sister. Their delicious cheesesteaks and pizza were a trusted, tried-and-true go-to at our house in all the time we lived in Voorhees NJ.

Be sure to get your last fix of Masso's ice cream and water ice before  they shut down on Aug 28!

We'll miss you, Masso's!
