The store was destroyed by an electrical fire on April Fools Day. Original reports had the store re-opening in “six to eight weeks.” Seven and a half months later, it seems that Brooklyn Heights will have a shiny new supermarket at its service. What can we expect: a coffee bar, breakfast sammiches, a sub shop, an olive bar and a “highly qualified baker”.
Update: Lots of activity in and around the store tonight. Some shelves look fully stocked already and while it appears that there’s still some structural work left to do a Grand Re-opening next Friday is looking totally possible. If anyone has photos, upload them to the BHB Flickr Photo Club or email them to webmaster AT brooklynheightsblog dot com.
