After 18 wonderful years of serving our community, it is with mixed emotions that we announce the closure of Cha-ya Japanese Tea & Things. Starting December 6, all items (excluding tea and food) will be 30% off. Please come say goodbye in person at 118 Webster Street in Monterey and get your favorite Cha-ya items before they are gone!
Our journey with Cha-ya began in Pacific Grove and continued in Downtown Old Monterey, and we are immensely grateful for the support and patronage you've shown us throughout the years. We want to express our deepest appreciation for you being a part of the Cha-ya family.
Your loyalty has been the heartbeat of our business, and we are truly thankful for the memories and relationships we've built together. As we embark on this new chapter, owner Mitsuko Gammon, who started Cha-ya 18 years ago, is excited about dedicating more time to family, including cherished moments with kids and grandkids. While bidding farewell to Cha-ya is bittersweet, we look forward to the future with optimism and gratitude.
To celebrate our years together, we invite you to join us for several special sales over the next couple of months. It's a chance to reminisce, grab some fantastic deals, and say goodbye in person. Your presence would mean the world to us!
Thank you for being an essential part of Cha-ya's story. We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming sales and sharing our gratitude in person.
With heartfelt appreciation,
Mitsuko & Kay
