It looks like the Kips Bay Fairway will meet its goal of opening before Christmas after all. The supermarket, which was previously slated to open in November, was delayed due to Hurricane Sandy. Now, DNAinfo reports it will gloriously open its doors on Friday of this week.
And leave it to a behemoth like Fairway to laugh in the face of Doomsday. The company tweeted: "The world wouldn't dare end! We're opening @FairwayMarket #KipsBay on 12-21-12 at 10AM!!! #122112." At least local conspiracy theorists in the neighborhood can hit up Fairway's salad bar for their last meal.
