Steve's C Town on 8th Avenue Closing



I can confirm from reliable sources that Steve's C-Town Supermarket at 4511 8th Avenue will be closing it's doors within a month. The property which had been bought by a Chinese developer a year ago has allowed the lease for the Supermarket to run out. C-Town has been at that location for well over 40 years and was the last remaining American supermarket on 8th Avenue. What will replace it is unknown at this time. With the closing of C-Town the Avenue will almost exclusively become a haven of Chinese businesses with a few bodegas left on the Avenue. As the demographics of the neighborhood change we may very well see them gone as well.

I love this C Town. Been shopping there since I moved. It is a pity to see it closing. It is a good supermarket. Well stocked and with good service. Do not like the other C Towns in the area.

That's a shame. The Steve's on 9th Street (Park Slope) is still in business, though no longer called C-Town - I assume the affiliation is gone? There's a lot of supermarket change right now, especially with the A&P bankruptcy. The Gowanus Pathmark has just been sold and as of now, will no longer be a supermarket - though I guess that might change. There are lots of smaller markets & bodegas going out too, including a market going condo on Fourth & 15th. Property values trump staples for the community. It's very sad.
