In the midst of Hurricane Sandy, the Key Food at 102 Montague Street scaled back its operating hours due to challenges with deliveries and gas. A manager tells BHB that those clipped store hours are here to stay.
Before Sandy, the store was open until midnight Monday through Saturdays, and until 11 p.m. on Sunday. Now, it shutters at 11 p.m. seven nights a week—and will remain that way. Key opens at 7 a.m. every day.
The store manager shared with us that the grocery had plenty of foot traffic in the late evening, but higher ups don’t want to invest in keeping the store open that extra hour. So much for late-night chip and guacamole runs…
The Key Food at 169 Atlantic Avenue is also open 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8-8 on Sunday.
