On St. Mark's Place, Porto Rico Importing Co. temporarily closing for a facelift
Porto Rico Importing Co. on St. Mark's Place near Second Avenue is temporarily closing tomorrow for what the owners, the Longo family, describe as a "much-needed facelift."
EVG regular Lola Sáenz shared these photos, including this shot of the sign for customers...
Per the sign: "We will be reshelfing, fixing the floor, moving the ice machine, and adding a better drip brewer."
The coffee-and-tea purveyors will return on Tuesday, Sept. 4.
The Longo family has owned the business, with four locations now, since 1958. Peter Longo took over the business in 1976 after the death of his father, Angelo.
