The CTown grocery store on Austin Street will close and its storefront will be absorbed by the Natural Market next door, a C-Town employee has confirmed.

The CTown, which is located at 72-48 Austin St, will close this Sunday, the employee said. The space will then be renovated and incorporated into the Natural Market at 72-56 Austin St.

Natural Market, which has been located in Forest Hills for more than 30 years, specializes in organic food and other groceries. The company also operates a Natural Market location in Garden City, New York. 

CTown is a White Plains-based grocery store chain with 140 locations in the New York metropolitan area, according to the company’s website.

The supermarket has been closed for a year. It’s a waste of space. The products are still in the store. When are changes to going to take place. But. Whole Foods would be wonderful for the area.

I am going to miss the store; they had things that the natural market didn’t as well as good sales as times. The natural market in the past was better when they had a salad bar many years ago.

Natural market is A gift to the
Forest Hills neighborhood.
It grew from A smaller space until
Baskin Robbins moved away
and Natural took possession of the corner space(expanding)I love the store and hope it expands even further. I wish C-Town Staff good luck in their future endeavors!

I prefer Natural Market – same type of products, independently owned, not overpriced, and not a giant conglomerate that regularly violates the law

Urgent manhunt underway for ‘animal’ who allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl in Flushing park on Thursday: NYPD

The NYPD announced a $10,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of a Hispanic man who allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl in a wooded area of Kissena Corridor Park on Thursday afternoon.

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
