History

The store was founded by Murray Greenberg in Greenwich Village in 1940 as an egg and dairy wholesaler. Louis Tudda later took over as the store's owner until 1991, when the store was purchased by Kaufelt. In 2002 a second location was opened in New York’s Grand Central Market in Grand Central Terminal and in 2008, a charcuterie opened by the name of Murray’s Real Salami, also in Grand Central Market. In 2010 the two Grand Central Market locations merged to become a second flagship store. The store has since expanded to include a 48-seat cheese-centered wine bar and restaurant (also located in Greenwich Village) named Murray’s Cheese Bar.

The store ages cheese in a state of the art caves facility in their warehouse in Long Island City. It was for a time owned by Robert Ian Kaufelt, who published the 2006 book The Murray's Cheese Handbook. Murray's has been voted the "Best Cheese Shop in New York" by Time Out New York in 2007.

Murray's formed a partnership with the Kroger Company in 2007 to place branded shops selling cheese and other foods in select Kroger supermarkets in the United States and as of 2017, there are more than 350 locations. On February 7, 2017 it was announced that Kroger Co. had purchased Murray's Cheese.
