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.
It would benefit the consumer if there were a competing supermarket next to the Natural.
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.
Maybe they will revisit that idea when they expand.
Why not let them know?
Yeah, right; like they would listen; would be nice though and maybe a place to sit inside and eat too; nah, not gonna happen
We need more supermarkets at Forest Hills.
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!
The area can use a Whole Foods supermarket.
I prefer Natural Market – same type of products, independently owned, not overpriced, and not a giant conglomerate that regularly violates the law
