Growing Farm, a local fruit and vegetable store, reopened on 37th Avenue today.

The store, located at 76-21 37th Ave., abruptly closed in September as a result of a landlord-tenant dispute. The landlord shut down the store and took possession of the property. A marshal’s notice was posted on the door.

Duwan Lee, the owner of Growing Farm, said that since then he has come to an agreement with the landlord. Lee said he has negotiated a 10-year lease.

“The people missed it too much when it was closed,” Lee said, whose business has been on the strip for three decades. “They’re happy right now that it’s open again.”

The store remains unchanged for now, although Lee said that he plans to make some minor renovations, such as fixing the brick walls on the inside of the establishment.
