Einstein's Bagels Closes
January 28, 2021
Einstein Brothers Bagels on Pico Blvd in West Los Angeles has permanently closed, store employees have confirmed to The Observer. Opened in 2013, the store served bagel sandwiches, knishes, delicatessen meats and schmaltz of all sort to the community. Workmen were seen removing the Einstein signs from the roof of the building on Friday, January 22, 2021.
The store was recently said to have "closed for deep cleaning" connected to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, but will not be reopening. Covid-19 has presented steep challenges for restaurants and their staff. Noah's Bagels and Einsteins were started by families, then later bought by corporations, merged, and spun off as privately owned companies.
The store is directly across from the Westside Pavilions, which is in the middle of a two year closure. it will reopen as office space for Google, Inc.
