Senator Street Duane Reade Closed - Lets Replace it with a Key Food!
I wasn't surprised to see that the Duane Reade at Senator St/Fourth Avenue Duane Reade has closed. I wasn't happy when it opened a few years ago. It gave Bay Ridge a new box drugstore, which it did NOT need ( there's a Rite Aid two blocks away ), and it took the place of the A&P/Waldbaum's Supermarket, which the neighborhood needed badly.
This part of Bay Ridge has no real supermarkets. I can drive to the Key Food on 95th Street, or to the Pathmark at Borough Park, but a lot of the retired or otherwise car-less people do not have that option.
This location is not huge, but it is as big as some very successful Key Food supermarkets.
I think that a Key Food supermarket would be the perfect tenant for this location. It would have no competition. Please hit "contact us" at the bottom of the Key Food website and ask them to consider moving to Senator Street and Fourth.
If they come here, I'll roll out the red carpet myself!
