Closing Bell: The J.Crew Fight Goes On


The Pacific Green grocer is not going down without a fight! After J.Crew announced it would open a retail store into the space on the corner of Pacific and Court, controversy ensued. Cobble Hill residents launched a petition not to evict the neighborhood grocer, who had no plans on moving. Now the Brooklyn Paper reports that the management of the Pacific Green Gourmet Food is gearing up to sue their landlord. The clothing retailer signed a 10-year lease for the building with plans to move in early 2014, but Pacific Green management says they signed a 15-year lease in 2000. The next step, then, is court, and if the grocers cannot stay in the building they’ll search for another location in the neighborhood.
