Another one bites the dust. The Village has lost yet another market.
Agata and Valentina, a specialty-foods store on University Place that sported good-quality fare, high prices and very nice staff, closed its doors on April 26.
The company has another store Uptown and one in New Jersey.
“They have always struggled,” one Villager reflected. “It’s kind of a Citarella place but not as well located. They had too many complicated components and they were always trying to change it.
“They did seem to have lots of customers until March last year when so many people moved out of the neighborhood. It’s too bad because it seems like they just needed to hold out for a couple more months.”
