The end is near for neighborhood staple Eagle Provisions.
The building that houses the sausage and beer mecca, located at 626-630 5th Avenue on the corner of 18th Street, was put on the market last summer for $9 million, and according to public records, the building sold for $7.5 million last month to 435 7th Ave Apts LLC, which also owns another building in the neighborhood.
At the time the Eagle building was listed, the brokerage firm said the owners of the store would be willing to move out following the sale, and it seems they’re doing just that. An employee we spoke to earlier this week told us their anticipated last day will be June 4.
It’s hard to imagine 5th Avenue without Eagle Provisions, and though we do now (finally) have the new Associated Market up the street, but, somehow…just not the same. We’ll miss you, Eagle.
