Cherry Street Pathmark to Close Six Weeks Early?

Posted on: November 20th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

The dying Cherry Street Pathmark sure ain’t experiencing an easy extinction. Critical basement flooding and subsequent power woes these last couple weeks have all but ended the thirty-year reign of this supermarket. Yes, the facility is still open, but remains on life support and is rather useless.

Pathmark is only open until 5pm these days, and shelves are running empty, with slim pickins at best. We are told that there are currently no plans to restock any of the meat, produce, frozen foods, or deli items. Moreover, half the store is now walled off. So, many readers are speculating that the closing date might actually happen six weeks early.

The situation here has driven those in the immediate environs to other groceries. Fine Fare on Clinton Street, in particular, is managing much of the spillover crowd. It’s a mad house these days. Rite Aid is picking up the Pathmark Pharmacy overflow in the wake of its closure last month. The branch at 408 Grand Street is now fulfilling all prescriptions previously filed on Cherry Street.

Meanwhile, word on the street still has Extell as the developer of the residential replacement, as previously reported.
