Iconic Norman Brothers Produce Officially Closed Its Doors After Nearly 50 Years In Business

KENDALL (CBSMiami) – A Miami staple has closed its doors after nearly 50 years in business.

Norman Brothers, a Kendall landmark, shut down for good Sunday.

CBS4 spoke with the owner's daughter, Kim Booth, and a long-time employee at the store, who shared their emotional final week.

"You know what, we just decided that it's time, it's time," said Booth. "It's hard, it's bittersweet, but we're going to be OK."

"It's been tough. The last couple of days, people have been coming in, reminiscing, giving us hugs. That part gets hard," said executive chef Jay Suggs.

From delicious milkshakes to fresh produce and food, the family-owned business will be missed.

Norman Brothers owner David Nelson is in the hospital with COVID. CBS4 wishes him a full recovery.
