7-Eleven Moving Into 142 Delancey
While Seward Park residents were able to stave off the slurpee-powered tentacles of 7-Eleven on Grand Street (temporarily at least), the corporate convenience store managed to snag a high-profile spot in a sea of other chains. Indeed, the eastern half of Delancey continues its trajectory toward total suburban strip mall, what with Sleepy’s (nay, Ratner’s), Dunkin’ Donuts, Payless Shoe Source, Chase Bank, Children’s Place, etc.
142 Delancey was previously home to Children’s Place before it downsized last year to a new location just a block away. During the interim period, the build-out was largely contained behind half-shuttered gates. But yesterday, much of the work spilled onto the sidewalk, and the ever-reliable construction worker broke the news.
7-Eleven is to occupy the entire 142 Delancey footprint, making for one ginormous outpost. Nearly supermarket size, in fact.
