Independent Manhattan Avenue Supermarket Natural Garden Is Closing
The independent supermarket Natural Garden (750 Manhattan Ave.) will close in the coming weeks and is the process of clearing out store stock with sales on most store items.
Signs posted in the front windows state that grocery prices are marked down 20 to 50 percent. A 74-year-old employee told Greenpointers on Monday that the store would close in “two-to-three weeks” and that decreasing business due to increased online shopping negatively impacted the supermarket’s bottom line.
The employee said that Natural Garden opened in Greenpoint approximately 17 years ago and that the building’s owner also operates the grocery store, the events space upstairs and the Woodstack clothing store directly next door , but the owner been spending more time out of NY.
