Food Bazaar Supermarket is growing its retail presence with three store openings within a week in Elizabeth, N.J., on Aug. 25; Brentwood on New York’s Long Island, on Aug. 29; and East 163rd Street in the Bronx, on Sept. 1. To mark the grand openings, a total donation of about 20 tons of food and general merchandise will go to three local charities: Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Saint Anne’s Parish in Brentwood, and City Harvest in the Bronx.
“We are deeply committed to providing our customers with a wide variety of fresh, authentic foods at affordable prices, and are excited to serve an even wider group of communities with these three new stores,” said Edward Suh, EVP of Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Food Bazaar. “We feel fortunate to be able to work with community leaders and organizations to build partnerships that benefit local families, which is why we have incorporated a large charity element at each of our ribbon cuttings. This ensures that much-needed goods will get to the people who need it most in our neighborhoods."
The three new stores will each feature a full-service seafood department, a meat department providing custom cuts, a bakery, a deli counter, exotic produce offerings and extensive international aisles — one of the grocer’s signature offerings. The chain also offers discounts for employees, senior citizens, firefighters and, in its New York City locations, IDNYC card holders. Additional savings are available through the company’s new loyalty rewards mobile app, which can be downloaded via the App Store or Google Play.
The public is invited to attend the opening ceremonies, which will feature the participation of community dignitaries, as well as family-friendly activities, a free gift for the first 1,000 customers, radio remotes and enter-to-win prizes.
Family-founded, privately owned and operated Bogopa (“Yearning for You” in Korean) operates more than 20 supermarkets in the New York City metropolitan area under the Food Bazaar banner.
