Please help us sing a sad song: The 50th Street Market is shutting its doors permanently next week, following unsuccessful attempts to find a buyer. The Market kept my family in milk and kitty litter for the past 4 years, and made our car-free lifestyle possible–without which we wouldn’t have moved here. It survived many years in many hands across the street from 7-11, and got regular car traffic from beer and cigarette shoppers. I would have thought alcohol sales would be up in this economy. Looks like I’ll have to jaywalk to 7-11 for my clandestine midnight Chips Ahoy outings from now on.
Much of their remaining stock is on sale during their final week. 2-for-1 sales on frozen pizza and the like. (Avoid the OJ, though, that refrigerator unit hasn’t worked for months.)
Ironically, the 2-for-1 sale makes it more affordable to pour one out for the homies.
