Post-It Letter to Grand Street 7-Eleven
Sometimes the simplest messages come across the strongest. Like a Post-It paster on a Seward Park storefront.
Last week, the Seward Park Co-op voted to allow 7-Eleven to open a bodega-killing outpost at 403 Grand Street, former home of Grand Day Spa. The grocer chain courted the neighborhood for the last few months, causing quite a controversy among the locals. Talk about Seward’s folly. Yes, there’s still a residual bitterness, perfectly stated in this window Post-It letter:
Welcome 7-11, and junk food, corporate greed, trash + crime.
It’s pretty absurd that 7-Eleven managed to finagle two stores within a three-block radius. The other, of course, being in the Loew’s Delancey building. All this corporate takeover is causing some massive brain freeze.
