ABC Super Store in Downtown Brooklyn Closing; 'Something New' Coming In

ABC Super Store, the super cheap emporium at 427 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, is going out of business after almost 16 years. A manager told McBrooklyn that the store would be out sometime in January, and that "something new was coming in," but he didn't know (or didn't care to share) what.

According to Property Shark, architect Felix Pustylnik was paid $300,000 on Nov. 10 for "proposed second floor commercial inside existing envelope, partitions and plumbing."

Currently, ABC uses only the ground floor. The second floor has no windows facing Fulton Street, as seen in this photo we took around Thanksgiving.

Whatever it's going to be, it will never be as fabulous as the old Horn & Hardart Automat, which used to be at this location. (You can read more about this on the Lost City blog.)

Maybe it will be a second-hand store. I hear they're getting popular.
