A Pathmark on Nostrand avenue is one of those scheduled to be closed.
If it is shutdown, people in the area have few other places to shop for food.
Michael Cohen has lived around the corner from the Sheepshead Bay supermarket for 17 years.
He says Pathmark's prices are affordable, the quality is excellent and he can't beat the convenience.
"I just come around the corner and I'm here at the store," he said.
The supermarket will close in the next two months.
More than 100 people work there.
This is the second time a supermarket has moved out of this building.
"When Waldbaums closed we cried, when Pathmark closes we'll fight," said Borough President, Marty Markowitz.
Politicians including Markowitz and congressman Anthony Weiner are working with the landlord and preparing letters to send to other supermarket chains.
"A&P I don't get it. When they took over Waldbaums, most Waldbaums left off and then they take over Pathmark and here we go again. I don't know what's going on," adds Markowitz.
Pathmark's bankrupt owner, A&P, says it boils down to dollars and cents. This supermarket is one of the company's worst performing stores so it doesn't make sense to stay open.
A&P's president put out a statement on the company's website saying in part:
"While this was a very difficult decision that will unfortunately impact some of our customers, partners, communities and employees. These actions are absolutely necessary as we work to strengthen A&P's operating foundation and improve our performance."
