      1. For whatever it's worth -- A friend went to the Fairway in Harlem today, and she was told that Red Hook will open around March 1st.

          they also posted today that theyre starting to hire additional staff for the store, which means it has to be around the corner

          1. re: shoelace

            In that post they specifically say they are scheduled to open in March.

        2. I never realized how much I relyed on the Red Hook Fairway until it closed. I can't wait till it re-opens!!

            Same here. I am finding myself in 3 and 4 stores and still not getting all I need. I actually went to the one in Westbury a couple of weeks ago.

          2. Just saw this report of a March 1 reopening. Yay!
