The Brooklyn outpost will feature a bar on their second floor mezzanine that will serve food, wine, beer and spirits…which may just put it at the top of our list for best supermarket. In a statement released by Vice President and District Manager, Todd Ferrera, he said:

“The Brooklyn community has been eagerly awaiting the opening date for this store. October 27 is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to celebrate with everyone.”
