Abnormally long lines at Fairway UES

Hello,
I have noticed that fairway on 86th street between 2nd and 3rd ave has become very crowded in the last month. I'm talking lines like trader joes in the east village people! I have lived on the UES for 3 years and it's never been like this before. I asked one of the managers at fairway what he thought the crowding was about and he had no idea and said that 20,000 people came in to the store yesterday which was a crazy high number to him. Any ideas?
