Sunday marked the final day of operation for upscale spirits store Courage & Craft just over two years after opening at Grand Central Market. Imminent closure loomed heavily as 15 to 20 percent discounts quickly gave way to products being listed for half off as inventory was cleaned out by early afternoon. Nestled into a corner near the Broadway entrance to the market, Courage & Craft struggled with the inability to allow customers to purchase wares for on-site consumption. This limitation in concert with pricing that failed to be competitive with the likes of nearby Whole Foods spelled an unsustainable business model for the shop. With business otherwise booming at Grand Central Market, look for the space to quickly be filled by another food or drink offering.
