An employee at the coffeehouse, bar, and restaurant tells Gothamist that the proprietor of Supercore, who is based in Japan, decided that he “doesn’t want to do it anymore” and gave his employees just four days’ notice ahead of yesterday’s closure. It’s unclear whether Supercore’s sister café in Tokyo will remain open. [Gothamist]
