NEW CANAAN - A popular deli in New Canaan is being forced to shut its doors at the end of this week.

Bob Watters, the owner of the Forest Street Deli, says he has to close because his lease is up and the property has been sold. The news has many customers upset and shocked.

Loyal customers call the deli a homey place and say everyone knows the owner.

Watters says owning the deli was not just a job, it was a lifestyle. He can't believe that after 21 years he will be turning off his grills for good on Friday.
