Graceland looking empty

Walked in Graceland on Avenue A and Second Street the other night... looking rather barren ... the shelves up top are empty...




Has anyone heard any updates on it closing?

I could never reach that high on those shelves anyway...

Still saying ten days. And it's going to remain a grocery.

Thanks for the info, BaHa...

Yesterday afternoon I was walking to Mary O's because she started serving brunch this weekend, and I noticed Graceland put up a sign (should have taken a pic) that said due to the economy they were being forced to close. Employees mentioned a new deli is coming in, possibly buying some of their inventory for a faster switch over. At this point is sounds as though some of the employees will be kept on, fingers crossed. Unfortunately I can't imagine a new place is going to clear enough $ to make up for the astronomical rate hike. Unless they jack everything up to Gracefully prices.

Thanks, Ryan. Yeah, I'm with you — you'd think to meet that preposterous rent hike, a new deli will have to charge a small fortune for food. And there are some people I know who already complain about Graceland's prices.
