Bayside Waldbaum's to close
From Bayside Patch:
The Waldbaum's on Francis Lewis Boulevard near Garden World is set to close, Community Board 11 Chair Jerry Iannece announced at Monday night's meeting.
“We worked hard to get Fairway in, and hard to get Stop and Shop in, but [closures are] just a fact of life now,” Iannece said, adding that 77 of the store's employees would be put out of work by the closure.
Unfortunately, the employees aren't the only ones who will be affected, according to Iannece.
“When you close the local super market, it sort of disrupts life because people are used to shopping there,” he said.
