The Shop Fair, just four doors down from this former supermarket, did unfortunately put this store out of business. It was previously a Met Foodmarket that was owned by Hyun Soo Kim, later being taken over in 2013 by Sunni Hsuan Wang and converted to Compare Foods. The 3600 square foot store unfortunately didn't stand a chance against the 22,000 square foot Shop Fair. You can see how close they were here.
Half of a former Met sign is still visible on the back of the store. I've messed with the lighting in the above photo to show increased contrast and if you look very carefully, the Met lettering is still visible.
While Shop Fair may have put this store out of business, there's one other store on the block that hasn't closed yet, and we'll see that tomorrow on The Independent Edition!
