Fairway will be closing its Harlem location at 2328 12th Avenue, located along the West Side Highway between 132nd and 133rd Streets.
According to a report by Crain’s, the location is expected to close at the end of June, and a store-closing sale could begin as soon as Friday.
The giant Harlem Fairway, perhaps best known for its giant “cold room” filled with meats, was supposed to be included in a bankruptcy sale earlier this year, but that sale fell through. The buyer, ShopRite, did however buy the parking lot of the Harlem store.
Fairway’s uptown location first opened in 1995.
It has also been reported that the Fairway locations in Plainview, Long Island and Red Hook will be closing.
Awful news. It’s a huge great supermarket. How on earth could this have happened?! So irritated.
