Replacement for 87-year-old 9th St. Bakery revealed
The 9th Street Bakery closed back in June, as we first reported. Owners Oleg and Tetyana Kucherenko said that they couldn't afford the 38 percent rent hike that the landlord requested with a new lease.
At that time we heard that a juice/smoothie place was taking over the space. Sure enough, here ya go. We spotted the workers putting up the signage last evening...
It's a beQu — for Beyond Quality. The company sells it juices at various health-food stores and what not. Apparently there was a storefront in Cobble Hill that is now closed.
Pretty tough competition for this kind of product right around here — there are two locations of Juice Press close by on East 10th Street ... not to mention Liquiteria on Second Avenue and East 10th Street ... and Organic Avenue on Third Avenue and East Ninth Street... and Commodities on First Avenue near East 10th Street...
In any event, we wouldn't mind one of these from the Bakery right about now...
