Meet your new neighbor on Avenue A


Thanks to a tip from RyanAvenueA, we now know the future of 240 E. Houston at Avenue A. (Read that post here.) Meanwhile, who has been to a Union Market in Brooklyn? And what can you tell us about the stores?

the one in park slope is nice, albeit a little expensive. lots of hale and hearty soups, a good selection of cheeses and produce. honestly though, it really has nothing to offer that whole foods doesn't already in that area.

So I lived on Union street in park slope for years- it's a really, really high end supermarket- Just what the neighborhood needs! (joke.) It'll have to compete with whole foods and the nine million trader joes, but at least it's not a condo, or a real estate office, or an NYU dorm, and I guarantee there won't be as many babies.

The Union Markets in Brooklyn - steep in price, & abuzz with the well-heeled hordes. Seems like a successful model, though you have to wonder if over-expansion might be a mistake.

From their site:

"It means making our stores family-friendly -- with special items for kids, and aisles that can handle a stroller."

LMFAO

Whatever it is, it can't be more expensive, or have worse customer service (or more expired food on its shelves) than Gracefully.

there are just as many babies in the EV as in park slope.

deal with it.

people have babies.

hipsters, deadbeats, rockers, etc...

and as much as i am now lamenting the loss of another corner bodega within two blocks of each other, the one that union market will replace was a dump.
