Joe & Linda Runge opened Runge's Imports and Delicatessen in 1969, and it has been a family labour of love from the start. Their daughter Monika grew up in the Deli, learning the ropes behind the counter as a teen and from 2005 to 2020 passionately carried on family tradition as owner/operator with husband Roger Ferguson. Also growing up in the deli and helping out his grandparents and parents in the family Deli throughout life, Sean Ferguson (Monika and Roger's son,Joe and Lindas grandson) left his career to learn and carry on the family legacy becoming the 3rd generation Owner/operator as of March 2020 to present day. Now with Sean's children growing up in the deli, Monika's kind face still serving customers somedays and Joe Runge checking in weekly its not uncommon to catch all 4 generations of this family business doing their part and reminding you what its all about.
Shopping at Runge's Deli is a distinctive culinary experience featuring over 100 imported European cheeses, deli meats and sausages sourced from traditional European sausage makers, large selection of specialty European liquorice and candy in bulk or bags along with shelves filled of imported European products spanning across Europe.
