Key Food, on 46th Street, is finally getting that long-promised upgrade.
On Saturday, workers were erecting scaffolding around the perimeter of the store as the revamp began. The vacant portion of the store will be incorporated into the main section.
Store manager, Raide Zahriyeh, said the entire project should be completed by November. He said the interior will be overhauled, too.
Residents have long complained that the store is ugly and detracts from the vitality of the neighborhood. Half of the store has been left vacant, with the exterior covered by concrete, wood planks and graffiti.
