Fairway Market Red Hook Reopening
Fairway Market held a grand opening for its Red Hook store in Brooklyn, NY March 2, four months after the store was shuttered in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Fairway’s arrival in 2006 had helped spur the Red Hook neighborhood’s rebirth and, despite losing more than $5 million in destroyed merchandising and property, the retailer continued to support the community after the storm, donating food, water, supplies and meals to local families. Additionally, Fairway continued to pay the company’s more than 200 store associates, shuttling them to other Fairway stores throughout the city. These Fairway associates at opening day are (l-r): Ian Pilarski, Dana Steiner, Benny Lanfranco and Ryan Casey.
