Health food store –offering nature’s prescriptions– to open on 50th Avenue


Feb. 27, 2015 Staff Report

A health food store—offering nature’s prescriptions—is opening at 5-29 50th Avenue, where Dog Island City was located for about five years.

There are few details on the 600 sqf. health food store– such as when the owners plan to open it.

Dog Island City operated out of that location until June 2014, before moving into a larger space on 44th Drive, by Jackson Avenue.

Dumb idea. Bring something new that doesn’t exist here yet. God knows the laundry list is long. But no, let’s do a repeat of what’s already been done, in the 3 block radius. Not to mention their location is nestled right smack innthe midele of 2 existing supermarkets. One of which, food cellar, carries tons of natural and health type products. And then of course there is the natural frontier supermarket 3 blocks away. AND it is way larger than this 600 sq/f location that will open. Oh, and the pharmacy part – there is the duane reade and small on a block away on vernon blvd. Retarded.


Nice idea, but there is already a health food store in this neighborhood. Hopefully, they will find a way to be profitable.
