NPR Sunday Puzzle (Sep 16): Synonyms for fragility?

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Sep 16): Synonyms for fragility?:
Q: Name a certain shop some people visit every day. Reverse the order of the last four letters, leaving the other letters untouched, and you'll get a new word that means fragility.
This week's puzzle is really hard!

Okay, I lied...

A: DELICATESSEN --> DELICATENESS
