Fairway Market in Red Hook, devastated by Superstorm Sandy, will be reopening better than ever this Friday morning, March 1 with a party and ribbon cutting, and everyone's invited.
Fairway friends and staff will join Borough President Marty Markowitz and other politicians, Miss America Mallory Hytes Hagan, 103.5 KTU's Matt Bosso, the Brooklyn Dodger Symphony Band and others at the happy affair.
While the store was closed, Fairway was a good neighbor, serving food to those hit by the storm in Red Hook, and donating food, money, and supplies. Over the last few months they have rebuilt the store with all new fixtures, lighting and cases from floor to ceiling. They've also rearranged some things to make browsing easier, and widened some aisles.
"And now we're back. We love this neighborhood. We've always been there. We'll always be there," the store says in their reopening press release.
New service: A Fairway shuttle picks up from 589 Prospect Avenue; or, if you live within 5 miles of Fairway, gather 10 people together and they'll pick you up at home.
