Local Favorite Forgtmenot Transforms into Grocery During COVID-19 Shutdown
With COVID-19 significantly interrupting the restaurant and nightlife game, some owners are resorting to drastic measures to stay on top.
Forgtmenot, the popular locals hang on Division Street, is temporarily morphing into a grocery store. The “General Store.” Ownership constructed wood shelving and attached to the facade, and also cleared out the interior. We’re told that groceries – produce and dry goods – will be stocked daily.
And they’re starting strong with hundreds of bottles of hand sanitizer and thousands of face masks.
Another easy option for Lower East Siders who don’t want to contend with Trader Joe’s.
