Back in January, we were by Key Food at 44-61 21st Street to check in on renovations there as the store took over for the old Kitchen Door space.1 Things have moved along quickly since then, and as you can see in the photos below, construction is basically complete.
First off, the aisles are significantly wider, so gone are the days where you had to move single file to get your groceries. The second part we noticed was a nice new produce section and the relocation of the deli to where the old Kitchen Door space was. The cash registers have also been moved back against the wall, as seen in the third photo. Overall, it’s a welcome change for a grocery that is trying to keep pace with the incoming Food Cellar by LIC Linc.
