Greenport health food store closing

Aug 04, 2023 12:11 pm

Jammel Cutler reports in Columbia-Greene Media that the Kaaterskill Farm Natural Storehouse health food store in Greenport closes Aug. 31 after 27 years open. Martha Stephenson of Greenport said, “I’ve been coming here for the last seven years, the prices were fair, and I liked that they made me feel welcome when I walked through the door.... It’s a shame that so many businesses are closing, first the Salvation Army Thrift Store, now this.” The store will continue to operate a Catskill location, where the six Greenport employees will be transferred to. Brian McGowan, chief executive officer for Kaaterskill Farm Natural Storehouse, said, “My wife and I started the business back in 1996, and we’ve grown the business, taken over more space.... To be honest, we really wanted to retire by selling the store, but our lease expired at the end of December. Our emails, phone calls and texts have gone unanswered since the early part of February. They haven’t responded to our attorney’s email, either. For 27 years, we have paid our rent on time every single month. The only thing I can assume is that they don’t want us as a tenant anymore.” The landlord, TRG, could not be reached for comment. Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
