According to the Facebook page, the store will be open during remodeling. The new store will be smaller in size and have significantly smaller sections of grocery, dairy, and frozen foods; the focus will be on the deli/prepared foods section. Going forward, there will also be no circular. If I were Olive Tree management, I would focus more on produce and deli, even if the store were the same size. The countless greengrocers in our area effectively use that business model. But only time will tell, I guess, what actually happens.
The store on Staten Island will remain open as a Shop Fair Supermarket.
