Yet another store on 7th Avenue is about to be vacant, as Garfield Farm Market at 156 7th Avenue on the corner of Garfield is going out of business. A sign announcing the closure is posted on the awning outside, and FIPS, which first reported the news, notes that it’s because of a rent increase.
We’re definitely going to miss their flowers — it’s always been one of our go-to spots for inexpensive, and long-lasting, bouquets.
We recently took a look at all of the storefronts currently, and soon-to-be, available for rent along 7th Avenue and just off the main street. Including this new one, there are 14 between Flatbush Avenue and 9th Street, ranging in rent from $3,800 to $14,000 per month. There’s no listing yet for this spot, but we’d guess it will be toward the higher end — unless, that it, the landlord actually hopes to rent it sooner rather than later.
