Chronic Avalon Chrystie Place defenders on the Lower East Side frequently cite the coming Whole Foods Market as one of the development's biggest pluses. But, as is frequently documented around these parts, the damn thing just refuses to open. And now comes word from a tipster that the wait may be even longer than anticipated:
About a month ago I was at Avalon Crystie Place, and the on site who I've known for a few years whispered to me that they don’t expect the Whole Foods to open for at least a year or so. Don’t know what the truth is, just thought you might like to know what the whispers are.And Key Food, granted new life, raises avocado prices to $4,000/lb.
