Thanks, Libby. The real story here would be what the owner of the property had to say and what they are planning for the grocery store space once Downing Supermarket is gone. Can you try to scoop that? Our neighborhood residents are VERY curious. We are in desperate need of a representative, appropriate grocery option in our neighborhood. Thanks!

The real story is in the article. Rising rent.

Yes, Matthew, that is the point of talking to the owner of the property rather than the tenant. It’s obvious why the tenant decided to leave. But go to the source. See my original point. ☝🏽

My name is Kathy and a recent visit to Canada BC they have built grocery and shopping choices in the underground of the living quarters. Very accommodating and also saves space for a maybe more contructive idea of what to do with space.

That works in other US cities, too! DC is a good example of this in practice, where new buildings have grocery stores in the basements and ground floors. I agree, Kathy!

Does anyone know how I can get to the leasing agent?
