Don't Evict A Neighborhood Grocer in Brooklyn

This petition had 4,499 supporters

Pacific Green has been a neighborhood institution in Cobble Hill since it opened in 2001. It provides great food and great service, and is beloved by the community. Fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, and lots of other foods fill the store. The friendly staff is always there to help you find whatever you need.

All that is about to change. The landlord has told them they are going to have to leave by the end of the year. A new J. Crew is set to open up in their space. The owners of Pacific Green have offered to pay more money, but the landlord has not changed his mind.

Locally owned businesses are part of the fabric of communities. They provide good jobs, they put money back into the community, and they support and understand the issues affecting the community. National chains don't have that same connection to the community.

Tell J. Crew not to move forward with this location. They can find another place that doesn't displace a local business. They may not be the ones directly forcing Pacific Green to close, but if they decide not to use this location, Pacific Green will be saved.

Please support our local businesses. Save Pacific Green!
