This is very sad news to hear that this local Greenpoint staple has closed. The Garden’s owner says the store couldn’t keep up with online shopping and chain grocery stores. They shut down on Sunday and will be missed. From their Facebook page:
It’s time to say goodbye and thank you. After 25 years in the neighborhood, we were losing business to both online shopping and big grocers who buy in huge quantities and can pass those savings on to their customers. While we always fought to keep prices as reasonable as we could, we just couldn’t compete; especially when dealing with local and organic produce.
We appreciate all of our friends and neighbors that supported us-both old and new. We will miss seeing you.
