I woke up this morning and saw an email from one of our readers, Susan Zinder. She told me about a New York Post article which stated that Fairway was planning for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and had plans to close all 14 of its stores – including its flagship on the Upper West Side.
The New York Post reporter stated that despite ongoing interest from another supermarket in buying the Fairway brand, an official liquidation may be announced as early as Wednesday.

“Under the current plan, Fairway will close all 14 of its stores, including its flagship store at Broadway and West 74th Street, sources said. The liquidation could be announced as soon as Wednesday,” states the Post.
But in a Tweet shared later on Wednesday morning, Fairway stated that this report was inaccurate.
Despite reports, Fairway Market has no intention to file for chapter 7 or liquidate all of its stores. All 14 stores remain open for business, offering a complete range of high quality, specialty food products, and we look forward to seeing our customers and employees.
