The cheese shop, Fresh Cheese, a long-time fixture on Endicott Street will close its doors. Its proprietor, Carmen DiNunzio, is heading to a federal medical center to serve up to a six year sentence for his guilty pleas to state extortion, gaming and bribery charges involving the Big Dig.
DiNunzio, 51, of East Boston gained the nickname “The Cheeseman” as a result of operating the shop.
The building itself is up for sale. Elite Properties is listing the building for $1.475 million including the three residential units at 81-83 Endicott Street.
Carmen’s Kitchen in East Boston is expected to remain open.
