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.
