Brooklyn Industries Closing Ditmas Park Store On Sunday

8

DITMAS PARK — Brooklyn Industries was an outlier on this stretch of Cortelyou Road, which is home to two dollar stores, a small gift shop and a handful of restaurants.

It opened in January of 2013, taking over the storefront that was for two decades selling Avon on the corner of Marlborough Road, a vote of confidence of sorts for a neighborhood in transition.

And now it will be the third vacant storefront on the block, when the store closes for good on Sunday. 1410 Cortelyou Road hopes to attract a restaurant to the space that was a toy store and more recently a cell phone store. It is unclear what will become of the old Brennan/Bichotte Office space that is undergoing renovations next door at 1412 Cortelyou.

According to the owners, the lease was up and they chose not to renew it.

  1. Agreed with both above. We really need a good bakery…it was such a shame when the old one closed down. A book store would also be great and would likely do well on cortelyou. Almost anything besides a Chinese takeout joint, a cell phone store, pizza place or another 99 cent store..or whatever you call them these days. A good bbq restaurant would be sweet too.

  2. One more..a good vintage clothing store would likely do well too. I knew brooklyn industries wouldn’t last..their prices are ridiculous.

  3. What I do to like about BI is that its clothes are imported, not made in the US or Brooklyn.

    Bakery or bookstore would be great!

  4. Just something other than a deli. We have a lot of those. An independent community bookstore would be great, but I won’t hold my breath. I think we’ll get another cell phone store.

  5. Nice location, terrible location for BK industries. As before mentioned, I’d like to see a bookstore, BBQ joint that competes with hometown/Morgan’s, or maybe a homemade ice cream shop / bakery
