The Mountain View institution known as Dittmer's Gourmet Meats and Wurst-Haus will reopen in a new Mountain View location within the next few months.
Dittmer's caught fire on Jan. 23. It's believed to have started when wood chips in a meat smoker were overheated and set alight because of a faulty thermostat switch. The store's numerous customers have been wondering ever since when Dittmer's will begin selling its sandwiches, sausages and award-winning meats again.
Owner Dittmer Bubert said work was underway to move the store but would not disclose the exact location, saying he wanted no distractions as work goes on inside. He would say that the new store is located on El Camino Real and is bigger and better than the former San Antonio Road location. Bubert said Dittmer's would reopen within the next few months, six months at the latest.
