Pickle Guys to Close Next Week, Hope to Reopen in May

Posted on: April 3rd, 2020 at 5:10 am by

Some sour news indeed for Lower East Siders: The Pickle Guys are going on hiatus. Indefinitely.

The brine stalwarts of Grand Street announced the closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which also coincides with the Jewish holiday of Passover. The pickle peeps hope to return at the beginning of May. The store will remain open until April 7; orders placed after 2pm that day will be placed on hold and fulfilled in May.

Better pick a peck of pickles while you still can.

From the mailbag:

Dear Pickle Lovers,

We tried to remain in operation for as long as we can to fulfill your pickle needs. With Passover around the corner, we feel that this would be a good time for us to take a break and socially distance ourselves for a while.

Our store will remain open until Tuesday, April 7th. All phone and website shipping orders must be placed before 2pm on April 7th. Any orders made after that will be placed on hold and shipped out sometime in May.

With all the uncertainty in the news, we are unclear as to the exact date we will reopen. Currently, we are aiming for the beginning of May.
