Save Met Grocery

Annie Schoening started this petition to Jackson Group, Aurora Capital Associates and ACHS Management

Met is currently the only affordable grocery store in the Boerum Hill / Cobble Hill neighborhoods, made up of people in all income levels, ages, races, religions, and needs. Shuttering it would especially remove the most vital need for its more vulnerable residents: access to food. (You know, the form of energy that's essential for sustaining life.)

Since The Real Deal reported that Jackson Group, Aurora Capital Associates and ACHS Management bought the property for $18.5 million in May, we demand they keep Met grocery store in business and its employees. 

This "investment" is yet another example of the unwanted development that's being forced upon our neighborhoods because a small group of "investors" would like to profit from public spaces. It's a digusting practice and it will not be tolerated.

There are enough national retail outlets in this neighborhood already. In signing this petition, we declare the demand for such retail space is non-existant, and the efforts of Jackson Group, Aurora Capital Associates and ACHS Management to be completely self-serving. 

This community will not allow the retail investors to take away our access to affordable food. They can listen now, or endure the consquences later.
