The worst kept secret on the Lower East Side is now official. Earlier this week, the Pickle Guys hoisted updated signage at its new location just across the street. The announcement now straddles the marquee of 357 Grand Street.

Behind the plywood shed, meanwhile, work is seemingly nearing completion on the forthcoming headquarters. Walls are tiled in white including some fitting green striping.

Timetable for opening is shortly after the new year.

Pickle Guys proprietor Alan 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. They expanded to Midwood, Brooklyn in 2008, but closed down a few months ago in anticipation of the Grand Street store. (There is now a delivery program servicing that area.)
