Goodbye, Crown Deli
Oh, that’s just great. West Hartford, CT– where all the Jews live– will now have no place to go to get their food. The final nail in the coffin? The Crown is closing!!
Where am I going to go to get my Jewish food now? The Crown Market, a fixture in the Hartford area’s Jewish community for 74 years, is shutting its doors. The specialty market, at 2471 Albany Ave. in West Hartford, is known for its comprehensive line of Kosher products, including its deli, fresh meats and prepared foods.
Citing “significant increases in competition, cost of goods, and one of the worst winters on record in a decade,” Marc Bokoff, the Crown’s owner/operator, announced the closing of the West Hartford market in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.
