Seward Park Co-Op Approves 7-Eleven for 403 Grand Street

Grand Street is starting to resemble Delancey more and more these days, what with the arrival of chain stores galore in the last few years. Subway, Papa John’s, a Citibank, Bank of America, and coming soon, 7-Eleven. It wasn’t enough that the Slurpee slingers snagged the highly-trafficked space in the Loew’s Delancey Theatre building just two blocks north.
Seward Park Co-op board members ultimately voted to approve the ten-year 7-Eleven lease for 403 Grand Street, former home of the evicted Grand Day Spa. The judgement reportedly hinged on the notion that the corporate empire offers financial stability, whereas a mom-and-pop wouldn’t. Official 7-4 affirmative decision came Wednesday night, three months after word first broke that both 7-Eleven and Dunkin’ Donuts were vying for this Seward Park strip. No word just yet on the former.
