The former location of Triple S is still available: http://brooklynian.com/discussion/44215/the-end-of-triple-s-market-822-nostrand-btwn-lincoln-and-eastern-parkway
However, the new upscale Korean markets that have opened, together with the upscale grocers in the works (such as Union market and Wholesome Food on Nostrand and Atlantic) give an entity like Bob and Betty's real competition.
Yes, the same family that owns Bob and Betty's (Tony and his family) do own the building on Franklin that is the site of the former Pioneer supermarket.
However, he has stated to me that he does not believe it would be profitable to open something there at this time.
We should realize that in 2018, Union market will open in a location that literally is going to have a customer base all around it: Small market rate apartments that are packed with young single people who have little desire to cook.
...perhaps the location of the Pioneer will have the same thing by 2018, but it doesn't now.
