Shea Cheese is opening their first location this month near 32nd St. and Shea.

Inspired by neighborhood markets focusing on local products and customer service, Shea Cheese specializes in American artisan cheese. A one-stop-shop for cheese boards and gifts, the store will feature a curated selection of farmstead cheese, charcuterie, and other pairings, along with a grab-and-go area, and special events and classes.

“We moved to Phoenix eight years ago and found the Valley to be a bit of a cheese desert,” says co-owner Jenny Zink. “A few new places have popped up, but with five million people we feel the metro area is still underserved. We’re excited to bring a fully dedicated cheese shop to the North 32nd ‘Sheaborhood.’ Our goal is to share our love of cheese in a friendly and approachable way with everyone.”

Located in a 600-square-foot space in Oxford Square, 10880 N. 32nd St., Suite 19, Shea Cheese is set to open mid-November. For more information, visit
