No Supermarket Replacement for Gowanus Pathmark?

From Supermarket News reporter Jon Springer's twitter account: 

This sounds like bad, bad news for employees of the two stores, one in Borough Park, and one at 1 - 37 12th Street,   I hope we'll get more news soon.  As part of the bigger picture, I wonder how this will affect neighboring businesses, a couple of which already have business space available for lease. And what will happen to the giant parking spot across from the supermarket?

Update: I visited the Gowanus store today and spoke to a couple of employees. They remain convinced that despite news to the contrary, another grocery chain will ultimately take over from Pathmark. Let's hope they're right.
