The supermarket inked a 20-year lease for a second Brooklyn location at 2149 Ralph Avenue back in June 2015. Fairway, set to open in January 2017, is replacing the long standing Waldbaum’s and will feature a fresh new look and feel with the same commitment to value. The market often compared to Whole Foods offers customers more than 60,000 items of natural and organic products, hard-to-find specialty and gourmet offerings, along with its full variety of conventional groceries and a robust prepared foods section.
“This location will be the prototype for our new store model. It will have a smaller footprint and lower cost structure than our existing stores,” said Fairway CEO, Jack Murphy.
The new store opening is said to create over 250 jobs for the community.
Fairway Market opened its first Brooklyn supermarket in Red Hook at 480-500 Van Brunt Street – closed after damage due to Hurricane Sandy, but then reopened in 2013. The chain also has five Manhattan locations including its first-ever store at 2127 Broadway on the Upper West Side.
