Fairway has set their ever-expanding sights on the Financial District, announcing plans for a new store at 255 Greenwich Street. The 52,000 square foot outpost is just two block north of the World Trade Center, and only one block south of major competitor Whole Foods. Recently, Fairway debuted on Sixth Avenue in Chelsea, spitting distance from both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.
The Financial District grocery store is situated at the bottom of an office building, much like the chain's upcoming Hudson Yards unit, and is due to open next year. There are currently 14 Fairway markets in the metropolitan area, five of which are in Manhattan. The company went public this past spring, and has seen shares grow 45 percent since then.
