As the Pickle Guys gears up for a big move across Essex Street, the company decided to axe their Midwood, Brooklyn location. It has been slinging briny goods at 1364 Coney Island Avenue for the last seven years. Final day in business is November 7.
News of its closure was distributed to email inboxes last night. “Seven years ago, we chose Midwood to be our second home,” the release noted. “We’ve experienced tremendous success as a result of our loyal customers who faithfully support our business and brand.”
Departing Midwood was a result of the expansion to 357 Grand Street, which has been in the works since last Passover. Interior build-out is now underway. “It’s emotional for us [to leave the neighborhood] because we love the location, and all the regulars, but we were fortunate to have an opportunity for expansion in Manhattan where we will be relocating.”
Pickle Guys owner Alan Kaufman opened this second location – Pickle Guys II – back in 2008. Kaufman founded the business fourteen years ago at 49 Essex Street. That was the year that Guss’ Pickles split for Orchard Street. Kaufman was head honcho under the reign of Guss, but decided to hang back and relocate a few stores away to #49.
