Cobble Hill Grocery Store Pits Celery Stalks Against Incoming J.Crew

By
Chinos or cucumbers?

After twelve years in business, Pacific Green has been told to pack up its awnings and vacate its retail space at the corner of Court Street and Pacific in Cobble Hill to make room for a swanky, new two-level J.Crew shop. The greengrocer and corner store's owners have approached its landlord with an offer to pay a higher rent in exchange for an extended lease, but the landlord has so far refused, which is why local resident Carl Foner has started an online petition beseeching the clothing retailer to drop its Court Street plans. The bid to save Pacific Green has almost reached its goal of 1,000 signatures. [Change.org]
