Williamsburg Retail Report: Big New Khims on Driggs Almost There

The Khim’s grocery empire in Williamsburg is very close to a major expansion at the corner of Driggs Avenue and N. 11 Street. A special GL correspondent reports: “This a new grocery store going in on Driggs and N 11th. It is the old warehouse space where that one guy would sell his junk on Sundays. They have already begun to stock the shelves. I talked to them over the weekend and they expect to open this week or next.” The rumor is that there will be apartments upstairs. There are already Khims on Graham Avenue and on Bedford Ave. near Grand, but this would be the the King of Khims to judge by the square footage. They have also applied for a license to sell liquor at the 460 Driggs location. Another reader writes, happily of the development: “Finally a welcome food shop where it’s badly needed (although it would have been nice to have a regular grocery store). Let’s hope the prices are reasonable.”
