The owners of 259 Nassau Street, the site of the former West Coast Video, plan to open a 7-11 convenience store in the building that has been vacant for several years.
Robert Bratman, who owns the property with his sister, Cynthia Bratman, wrote a letter to residents from the East Nassau neighborhood informing them of the plans and inviting them to an informal neighborhood meeting.
“For the past several years we have been searching for a tenant that not only has the financial stability to ensure longevity but who will provide the community with a store from which to purchase fresh grocery products and other important items,” Bratman wrote. “We have found that tenant in 7-11.”
The meeting with representatives from 7-11 will be held at 7 p.m. on March 13 at the Chestnut Street fire house.
“We are hosting an informal meeting for the representatives of 7-11 to introduce themselves to the community and to provide you with an overview of their plans for the store,” Bratman wrote. “We hope that you will attend this informative meeting.”
