Met on Bowne Closes

Met_Food_pic_web The Met Food on Bowne Street in Flushing officially  closed its doors this week. The site was bought by a  developer, who plans to raze the store for a taller  residential building, although exact plans remain murky.  No jobs have been filed with the Department of Buildings  yet.

However, there have been rumors that the new owner is  considering a grocery store on the first floor of any new  development.

In the meantime, losing the Met will be a burden for the  elderly and those who have trouble getting around, as the Met was the only store in the neighborhood that offered home delivery on purchases of $25 or more.
