As it turns out, the D'Agostino supermarket on University Place?left dead and buried by Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and even its property managing agent?is not going anywhere. Looks like it was just a case of some hardball being played. The man in charge sent this update:
After months of trying to get them to renew their lease, they have finally agreed to do so (after initially not responding to -numerous- offers from us to do so.) So, they will be there for a few more years after-all. "For rent" sign to come down in the next couple of days.So we'll assume that the other D'ag closings are just the landlords applying some pressure. Or, you know, not.
