John Pistoresi Acquires Pybus Cheese Shoppe; Cheesemonger Brand Returns to Pybus Market

Effective July 1, John Pistoresi became the new owner and operator of the Pybus Cheese Shoppe, acquiring it from Barb and Dave Hambleton. Hambleton’s had owned and operated the merchant space at Pybus Market since November 2013. Pistoresi owns the existing Cheesemonger’s Shop in Leavenworth.

“I am excited to join the other merchants at Pybus Market who have built such a popular community gathering place,” said Pistoresi. “We expect to build on the success of the Pybus Cheese Shoppe, but we will also expand the selections of cheeses, add additional retail items that are unique and of high quality such as chocolates and preserves, and do a remodel of the space to improve the shopping experience,” added Pistoresi. “We will immediately change the name to “The Cheesemonger’s Shop” because the brand carries such a strong and favorable impression among the public,” added Pistoresi.

“John Pistoresi has shown he can take a popular business in Leavenworth, improve the visitor experience and make it even more popular,” said Steve Robinson, executive director of Pybus Market.

“We expect him to do the same here at Pybus Market,” added Robinson.

The Cheesemonger’s Shop at Pybus Market is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 6pm; Saturday from 9am to 6pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm. Their phone number is 509-888-9930.
