BETHPAGE, N.Y. — King Kullen Grocery Co. will close its Castleton Corners location in New York City’s Staten Island this summer, marking the second King Kullen to close in the borough this year, reports said.
Both the store that closed in January and the Castleton Corners store, which is scheduled to close Aug. 31, were among five stores King Kullen acquired as part of federally mandated divestitures in the A&P-Pathmark merger.
