A & S Pork Store in Park Slope, Brooklyn is closing on October 1. This real butcher shop is our source for sausages, roasts, and the best homemade mozzarella and ricotta we've ever tasted.
A&S is closing because they can't afford a huge rent increase.
We're wondering if you have more reports of family food businesses near you that are closing down as prices for almost everything increase? And, we ask more hopefully, have you heard of a business model that keeps family owned food businesses at work in their neighborhoods as real estate costs escalate?
