Cobble Hill resident Carl Foner’s Change.org petition asking J. Crew to set up shop somewhere else and not displace the Pacific Green Gourmet market from 151 Court Street has topped 1300 signatures. Earlier this week Foner wrote to supporters when the list hit 1250:
We’ve reached 1250 signatures!
We’ve reached 1250 signatures so far. Thanks everyone for signing the petition, sharing information, and spreading the word. Thank you also to those who have offered ideas and suggestions. It’s great to see this community coming together to work towards something we care about.
We’ve gotten a lot of good press since the last update: Brooklyn Bugle, Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Grub Street, and more. (See our Facebook page for more details.) It’s great to see the story spread.
We’re continuing to press forward. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date with any more news. And feel free to pass along any news you encounter as well.
