I don't know what to say. As someone who appreciates some of the low sale prices Associated has, as someone who shops there every day it seems, I regret that Associated has lost.
The news is on the Town & Village website:
Yeah, some of our residents will be happy, as will Blackstone and Rick and Company, but this is not good news for us tenants who have seen this city "blossom," with prices to match. Perhaps it doesn't matter to you. Fine. Life goes on.
Another part of New York City will be gone.
A Morton Williams will take over. Expect major renovation, closure, and an opening with special sale items to get us interested. And then expect, after a little while, the prices to go up.
