Another bodega expansion is happening…

The dual Delancey departures were by no means a coincidence. Both Lichtenstein & Co. and Baruch Singer moved base of operations, the former to Brooklyn and the latter two doors west to number 85. The shuffle left two stores for the taking, and that’s precisely what happened.

In the wake of Lichtenstein, we were told that some sort of “gourmet grocer” would become replacement. The store signage that went up yesterday confirms the news. And according to DOB paperwork, the dudes behind Corner Grocers on Orchard Street – Pratik and Raj Shah – are running the show here, too. It’s called GreenStar Foods. The Shah duo also owns the East Village Farm which was the site of a terrible drunk driving accident on Wednesday.

The adjacent Delancey stores were combined for the new grocery, an establishment that now sits in direct competition with a formidable foe. Happiness Deli, the longtime reliable bodega which is itself expanding to 243 Broome Street in the near future.

GreenStar Foods should open any day now.
