Notable retail openings/relocations/closings in BoCoCa Brooklyn

 

 

1 – Retail closing in 68 Bergen Street between Smith  Street & Boerum Place – Numero 28 pizzeria – despite the sign saying it’s closed for 2 weeks of renovations – the head office in Manhattan said they “have no plans to re-open” when we called on Friday. Let’s hope the spokesperson was misinformed – their pizza was delicious.
