I stopped by C Town earlier today and had a good conversation with Steve the owner. Steve, who grew up on 43rd street in Sunset Park announced that he is working on a prospective location on 8th Avenue and that if all goes well he will reopen a better, newer and upgraded C Town on the avenue by the end of next year assuming all goes well. In the meantime he still has the store on 9th street and said he will deliver to the area from there. His circular and delivery information can be seen here at the C Town Website including contact numbers.

In the meantime, I am working on a piece to alternative stores nearby while Steve's relocates. All suggestions are welcome and you can drop me a note at FRANK413 AT AOL DOT COM and if it's somewhere I haven't visited or thought about I will include it.
In the meantime, this is the number one location alternative if you are determined to shop at a C Town and the closest nearby. (The other C Towns on 5th Avenue haven't been renovated since the stone age). Below is a picture of the relatively new upscale C Town located in The Green Wood Heights section of Sunset Park on the corner of 25th street and 4th Avenue. The store is less than 5 years old and caters to the slightly more upscale clientele of the area. It also has parking which is a plus. If you have access to a car it is definitely worth the visit. You can access their circular online HERE..
