Longtime New York seafood distributor M. Slavin & Son's former spot in the storied Fulton Fish Market in New York City is up for grabs.
On Tuesday AuctionAdvisors announced it has been retained to auction off 10 stalls, consisting of 22,000 square feet of space at the fish market, which handles millions of pounds of fish and seafood, with sales of over $1 billion (€900 million) per year according to AuctionAdvisors.
M. Slavins’ location is the largest spot and in the most strategically desirable location in the market, according to AuctionAdvisors.
In 2011, M. Slavin filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and completed its recapitalization with North Mill shortly following the filing. The company laid off its 48 employees on June 1 of this year, according to a government filing.
In June, US seafood subscription startup OceanBox confirmed with IntraFish it had acquired M. Slavin.
