I sensed something was up with the Brooklyn Trader Joe's deal, when week after week brought no activity inside the old Independence Bank at Atlantic and Court. Now, Brownstoner reports, via Cobble Hill Blog, that the whole deal between TJ and landlord Two Trees has gone south.
A representative for Two Trees, however, says the chatter is a lot of hooey, and that the store will eventually open. "The rumor is, well, just a rumor," says the rep. No word, however, on when TJ’s is actually going to set up shop.
And Marty Markowitz went to all the bother of leading a parade down Court Street and everything!
