Yes, Yes, Mariano's Om South Shore

I would very much want them on 71st in Jeffery. Have lived in the area for over 50 yrs. There are stable people that would like to shop in our community, rather than drive a distance North or South.

    Mr. Hassan I did go down the street for many years and shopped at Dominick's on 71st.for many years while they were here in the neighborhood and yes their food prices had become very high also I believe that is one reason why they were losing Business and closed. Because people started shopping else where like Walmart and also food for less too get same brand of products but at less cost and I been shopping at food for less now for awhile since they haven't put a new food store in our area on 71st Jeffery I'm about 4 yrs or more now. So yes I go elsewhere now too shop and some times it can be very costly transportation wise but what else am I too do I don't care for jewels on 75th stony the store too small and crowded all time and everything thing also out stock and pick over and there prices are just ridiculous too high especially the fresh meat. Alda and save a lot is 👌 for some things. But when I really want food shopping for me and my family I go up on 87th and Danryan too Food for less and stock up for weeks on food for me and mine. And I never had a problem with any thing I ever bought there at all. I save money and get my money worth and my family stock up with food for weeks and they are feed well. So I would like too see a food for less store put there on 71st.jeffery.cause I believe they would get twice as much business there from this community then a Mariano's would but that's just my opinion. But no matter what any store replace there would be welcome and greatly appreciated and needed. Cause it been too long not having one there Now. 😃

    @Clinette, I'm with you 100%, at this point any grocer would be welcomed. Karriems and Stop n Save supposed had come to this location but I don't know what happened. Maybe if Leslie ran the ward right we'd have had one by now
