Yesterday was the last day in business for the convenient store at 430 E. 14th St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.
An EVG reader, who shared the above photo, passed along the news. A clerk at the store said that they were moving uptown. He declined to say why they were leaving the neighborhood.
Perhaps it's due to the decrease in foot traffic along this corridor in recent years. The store is directly next door to the former Peter Stuyvesant Post Office, where a residential building is in the works.
This PO branch closed almost three years ago to the date in 2014.
