READ: FAIRWAY WILL OFFICIALLY SELL HARLEM LOCATION


Harlem Bespoke: The official news now is that Fairway will not completely go out of business but will have to sell 5 of its main stores as part of a new Chapter 11 Bankruptcy filing.  Not only will the Harlem location on 12th Avenue will be up for sale but also the main flagship Upper West Side address which originally made the New York City supermarket an iconic destination.  There are 14 Fairways in all but apparently the ones in Manhattan will be hardest hit. One possible outcome could be that the Harlem Fairway transforms to another supermarket (looking at you TJ’s) once the sale goes through instead of being liquidated but that is just speculation on our part.   Read more about the story on Grub Street: LINK
