At the end of this month, Italian Superette Good Food will shut down after 85 years in business. Located in Carroll Gardens at 431 Court Street (between 3rd and 4th Place), the store has supplied fresh mozzarella, Italian sausages, olives and other Italian delicacies, along with a deli and meat counter. Good Food also carried everything from canned goods to cleaning products and everything in between.
Pardon Me For Asking blog adds that the business first belonged to the Bruno brothers, relatives of NY City Office Of Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Bruno. Then brothers Mike and Allegrino Sale bought the supermarket and the building, and have managed it for the past 35 years.
Pardon Me—which interviewed the owners—also reports that representatives of Investors Bank have made the brothers “an offer they could not refuse” for the property. The Jersey-based bank will open a branch at the location.
