Once More, to Key Food

Yes, it's back to the compelling mystery of Jo, Brian & Joseph's Key Food, which is still closed, purportedly owing to a power issue of some kind.  Today, though the shutters were down, the store doors were wide open.  They stayed that way all day. This seemed like a strange way to leave the place for any length of time.  It also helped one identify the source of the odors wafting at the corner.  Eau de rodent?  Attar of forgotten broccoli?  Something is rotten in the supermarket kingdom

The door was open because building management was trying to air the place out after complaints from residents of the apartments above. There is absolutely something rotten in there (I suspect many things) because the entire building smells like death. Can't even explain how frustrated I am w/ whoever is running the show over there.

Yes, the whole corner has been smelling putrid. I feel sorry for the residents above the store. Have they been calling 311? - it seems like an issue for the Department of Health. And maybe informing the local reps? Jim Brennan's office is always responsive and really helpful, more so than most of the others. There's another Jo,Brian et al. on Flatbush - perhaps a little noise outside there might help ... Let me know how things go.

I saw the residents' note put up (today?) and will post it. Thanks for your comment and explanation. Good luck.
