Ace Supermarket on Seventh Getting a Big Reno

Ace, the charmingly cluttered old school supermarket that's been situated on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Berkeley Street since the 1960s, is finally getting a major renovation. Work has been been underway for over a week now, and should be all done within a couple months.

According to the owner, the entire market will be overhauled, redesigned, and modernized. They'll begin making sandwiches to order (from a new deli section), start selling flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables, and generally bring the place into the 21st century (new floors, shelves, etc). The windows will also be cleaned, so more natural sunlight will be allowed in. And best of all, it'll be open 24/7.

No word yet on whether that classic sign will be sticking around.

I hope they save the sign too, but considering it is being renamed "7th Avenue Gourmet" (as signs say in the window) I am doubtful.

Keep the retro sign.
And, keep the great beer selection.
(And, keep selling beer to Berkeley-Carroll kids with fake IDs).

Fixing up the back of this place would do wonders for the store. Right now, it just kind of....ends. There's a busted freezer, some dark and shadowy corners and canned food with a solid layer of dust on them. The beer selection is solid and it's tops for convenience though.

i think they might be the same owners as that market on 5th avenue and berkeley? if so, that place is very nice.

Hopefully their prices will be fair and reasonable on vegetables and fruits..maybe I won't have to schlep to Key Food anymore!...although that's unlikely haha.

Please keep the sign around! Park Slope, in it's best areas, has such a classic village vibe... although the space can certainly use the forthcoming renovation, the sign is awesome and should stay as-is! Consider it Landmark Preservation and cost saving all-in-one!!!

If they change their name to "7th Avenue Gourmet" I think I will barf. Associated on 5th Ave and Union cleaned up it's act with a series of reno's and they never changed the name. The name change is ridiculously vapid, because the place will still be a supermarket hopefully still good for an awesome beer selection, with an improved layout. That name is trying so hard to be something it's never going to be.

I hope they keep the sign and the beer selection but get rid of the
broken refrigeration and terrible smell.
