Coney Island Key Food to open after finishing Sandy repairs
A Coney Island Key Food supermarket that has been closed since Superstorm Sandy hit is reopening Friday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and an appearance from Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz.
The grocery store has spent the past seven months rebuilding and renovating after Sandy ravaged the area. In addition to the ribbon-cutting, there will be a face painter and other children's entertainment from 1p.m. to 3 p.m. at the 505 Neptune Ave. store.
"The people of Coney Island were hit hard and have greatly missed this store," vice president of business development Gino Palumno said in a news release. "We are so happy to have Key Food rejoin the community -- bigger and better -- and continue to serve this great neighborhood."
