Back in May, we heard the upsetting news that Pino's Prime Meats might be evicted from Sullivan Street after several decades in business. You rallied around, gave support, and signed the petition (over 1,600 signatures). And now there is good news.

Pino's son Leo let me know that they have settled the case with the landlord. He said, "Pino's is here to stay. My father is so happy we can stay for the remainder of our five-year lease (hopefully longer)." They are still working on extending their lease, which will end in 2017.
Leo writes, "The store has really become a part of us and the neighborhood. Thank you for all your help! We appreciate the support of our community, friends, and neighbors. We are at a complete loss of words for how grateful we are to everyone who helped keep Pino's a part of the community."
Sometimes, we really can help to keep the city from vanishing.
