Pathmark coming back to Brooklyn with East Flatbush store in April
Amid recent financial trouble, one of the leading names in the food retail scene is making a big return to Brooklyn.
Pathmark is coming back this April on Albany Avenue in East Flatbush. 

"The store itself was successful, although maybe the corporate entity wasn't, and we think that the demographics here really align with what the Pathmark brand stands for," says Noah Katz, co-president of PSK Supermarkets.

The store will be in the exact space where the store was before being closed with the A and P bankruptcy in 2005. Allegiance Retail Services and PSK Supermarkets are putting the name back up.

"When people walk into the store, it is going to be like going a little bit back in time, like, ‘wow I remember this’ and that's what the return of Pathmark is all about." says John Derderian, president of Allegiance Retail Services.

The store is also creating about 150 new jobs in the area with most of the employees being local residents.

The store is expected to open either the first or second week in April.
