A Farewell to a Stalwart in the Community

In a mournful announcement, Wehner's, a fixture in the Silver Lake community since 1969, has declared the closure of its doors. The Wehner family, with a rich legacy in the grocery business dating back to 1915, has been an integral part of our town's story.

The Wehner family is currently under contract with another entity set to acquire the building. Until the finalization of this transaction, Wehner's pledges to continue providing the quality merchandise that has become synonymous with their name.

The exact closure date is yet to be determined, and in the interim, the community is invited to join hands in supporting Wehner's during this transitional period. The outpouring of gratitude and reminiscence has been palpable, as residents reflect on the cherished memories and warmth that Wehner's has brought to Silver Lake.

The City of Silver Lake expresses its heartfelt appreciation for the Wehner family's decades of dedicated service. We acknowledge the bittersweet nature of this farewell and encourage the community to share their memories and extend well-wishes to the Wehner family during this time.

As a city, we also want to thank all members of the community who have consistently supported our local businesses, making Silver Lake the vibrant community it is today. The impact of Wehner's closure is felt deeply, but our shared memories and gratitude for their service will endure.

In the spirit of solidarity, we encourage residents to continue supporting local businesses, ensuring that the sense of community that Wehner's embodied remains an integral part of Silver Lake's future.

Closure Details:Wehner's will remain open until the finalization of the building's sale, with the exact closure date yet to be determined.

Thank You, Wehner's, for Being a Part of Our Journey.
