The Red Hook Fairway is set to reopen this Friday, and not a moment too soon. Since closing afte Superstorm Sandy, the company lost an approximate total of a shit ton of money. More specifically, "$2.1 million in unusable merchandise and $3.4 million in property and equipment". They also lost an additional $2 million each month, "in part because it has continued to pay the store's employees." [WSJ]
