East Village Mini Market is now open at 153 Avenue A near 10th Street.
We noted this pending arrival on Sept. 2 — when the new signage went up on the storefront. Then, workers removed the signage, casting doubt on the opening.
There's now temp signage up there obscured by the opening balloonage.
And this is not a smoke shop (there is a small assortment of CBD products) ... but it's mostly snacks, beverages, etc. However, there is no deli counter here for sandwiches, wraps, salads, etc., like the business it took over — Tompkins Finest Deli & Grill.
TFDG abruptly closed late last month after 11-plus years.
