Waldo Welcomes Geo's Cheese Shop

During these warm, humid summer nights, it’s just too hot to cook.  It’s easy to make a light meal of cheese, fresh bread, salami and wine..does that sound tasty?   One of our new neighborhood shops is ready to help—Geo’s Cheese has opened at 221 E Gregory Blvd!

 

 

Owner Spencer Woodard is a wholesaler by trade, owning Geo’s Foods.  He’s been in the cheese business for fifteen years, was born and raise in Kansas City, and lives in Waldo.  Spencer says he’s always wanted to open a gourmet cheese place in Kansas City, and after looking at a few other locations, decided on this spot at the corner of McGee and Gregory.  “The word ‘cheese’ draws so many people” he explained.  “ I always thought Kansas City needed a cheese shop.  We love the neighborhood and being here, everyone is so supportive.”

 

There are SO many kinds of cheese here.  Spencer says what sets this store apart is the unique assortment, including aged cheddar from 1-15 years, and the competitive prices.  I even saw chocolate cheese displayed (!?),  cheese curds, and imported cheeses from France, Brazil, Spain and Bulgaria.  The shop is full of other goodies too:  crackers, specialty mustards and nut mixes, summer sausages, olives, salsas and jellies,  chocolate.  Within the next several weeks, Spencer plans to add wine for sale and host wine tasting events.  Geo’s Facebook page hosts special cheese cooking challenges that have become quite popular!

 

As with just about every other locally owned Brookside/Waldo retail shop, there is an emphasis on personal service here.  Chances are Spencer’s longtime friend Gary Seabaugh will greet you at the door and offer his assistance.  If you call ahead, Geo’s will put together a special gift bag of cheeses, crackers, etc you can pick up ready to go.  Or just stop in and browse—bring something special home for that last minute meal on a warm night!

 

Geo’s Cheese    is open Monday through Saturday, 10:30am-6pm at the SW corner of Gregory and McGee in wonderful Waldo!

This sounds like my kind of store, I am sure the smell is wonderful. Every neighborhood should have a good cheese shop. Unfortunately in PA they would not be allowed to sell wine due to our antiquated licensing laws.
