Uncle Johnny has a new closing date

As reported this past week, Uncle Johnny Grocery Deli Supermarket is closing on the SW corner of Avenue D and Fifth Street. 

EVG contributor Stacie Joy stopped by the shop on Friday and learned that the closing date has been moved up by a week from Feb. 28 to tomorrow (Feb. 21). We're told that the lease was expiring.

Here's a look at some of what remains inside the grocery...
As with any one-level parcel of properties, there is speculation that this corner is ripe for development... and given the residential buildings erected along this corridor in recent years (the Adele ... Arabella 101 ... NIKO East Village). However, there's nothing on file with the DOB to suggest any new projects at the moment.

Very very sad to see the destruction of a
local well liked business.
Now what are they going to do ?
