Austin Street CTown to Close, Natural Market to Expand into Storefront


Sept. 20, 2018 By Tara Law

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.


Yeah, right; like they would listen; would be nice though and maybe a place to sit inside and eat too; nah, not gonna happen

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
